You may have a slight bottlneck but it's virtually nothing. I have the i7 930 and I OC'ed it for my gtx 680. If you don't want that then learn how to overclock your CPU.

u will need to upgrade ur psu to 600w because ur will stuggle for power
Jan 11, 2013, 11:26 PM
so i absolutely cant because upgrading my psu will result in a total dissemblance of the pc which is something im trying to avoid

the best card you can support with that PSU is an HD 7750, which is only one-third as powerful as the GTX 660ti
