That is a very old card and I'm surprised that it can even run the game. Low resolution I suppose. GTX 660TI is better is kinda the overclocked version of 660. Also you can get HD7870 GHz at a much lower price with almost same speed.

First off, what are you looking to spend? Also as for the cpu being a bottle neck, not a chance.

With that card no it wouldn't bottleneck I would imagine with the higher end current gen cards it would give the bulldozer chip a lot of trouble. 7850, and 660's shouldn't give it any trouble.

If you are on a tight budget, you can get the HD 7770 but basing on the options you gave us.. GTX 660 Ti is best

If you can afford the extra 2500 go with this it is definitely worth it

The prices of graphics card's are really high in India so either you can go with this card or wait until amd 8000 or GTX 700 series come out, which will make the prices current neration processor go down.

Ill recommend you check the prices in shops of Kolkata and bengaluru.

I prefer gigabyte over MSI also the ard you specified is out of stock and I am pretty sure that they will not restock it because the demand for graphics card is very low here. This is also the reason for the prices to be high.

Ctc in Secunderabad? My geography is not good at all? If you are getting it cheap go for it. Get the cheapest variant of the card you are buying and you'll be fine.
Can you do me a favor and check the price of Thermaltake Level 10GT?

Do you mean You want to SLI two GTX 650 TI?
The GTX 660 is faster than GTX 650TI also costlier
Benchmarks http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/680?vs=660
It is better not to SLI two cards also SLI capable motherboards which do not share the pcie bandwidth are very expensive.
Get a 660 and overclock it yourself.

A 660 can be sli'd I would suggest a EVGA signature 2 card if you do get a EVGA card and if you go with a GTX660 you will be far happier with the 660 then the 650Ti.

I don't think that the EVGA cards are available here. You can go with gigabyte or palit. Both make great cards. I have used palit and the build quality is pretty good.

In India, I checked with online shops and one of the big markets of computer hardware.
If EVGA was available I would have suggested him to get that too.

Why did you buy a fast card for such a old processor? What motherboard do you have?

Well irregardless he has a AM3/AM3+ board that is what houses that chip. He will need a stronger CPU to take advantage of that chip. If you are not wanting to part with your board there is a possibility you can get a piledriver chip to cope with things better what board do you have.

Bottleneck means that one component will prevent the other component to be used at full speed.
You are fine with the fx8120, this processor will not bottleneck the graphics card. Get a GTX 660 from palit or zotac or MSI and you will be fine. Brands don't make much of a difference untill you go with a very bad quality brand.
Actually here it is better to buy a nVidia card as the prices of the amd cards are high. The GTX 660 is the best card for the RS. 15000 price range.
What is the price you are getting HD7870 and HD7770 at? And are you are it is a ghz edition card?

I would guess that if you were to update your bios the ability to have all chips supported would be there. And I agree with Xttony that a mid of the road card would probably be the best solution for something like your bulldozer cpu.

If you have to replace your motherboard then yes it would be better for you to go with a intel solution.
And it looks like you have the non revision board.

Why do you hate ASRock? The ASRock z77 extreme 4 is the best value for money board. Anyway if you want to go with a different brand get a gigabyte z77x up5h for $150.
Asrock was a part of ASUS a couple of years ago.

I like the UP5 because it comes with thunderbolt ports which separates it from the other boards in the price region. I would say a 3570k is more then enough for you. If you do 3d work, rendering or editing I can see a i7 being worth it for you if you do it a lot however if you don't save some money and get the 3570k

Thunderbolt is a new standard people use it for external devices hard drives for example that is the only one I can think of. M SATA is for ssd's on a motherboard without using the normal power and read cables. And they are probably describing crossfire/sli speeds.

Thunderbolt is a mixture of a display port and the speed of a pci slot. you can connect devices like a monitor(with a display port) or a storage device. One thunderbolt port can connect upto 7 devices. Max speed of thunderbolt is 10Gbps.
Don't know much about m Sata and e Sata.
Pcie has a specific bandwidth. And the slot (x8, x16) are like the multipliers of the CPU blck. So if you have a x8 slot the bandwidth = pcie bandwidth x 8, pcie x16 slot bandwidth = pcie bandwidth x 16 and so on.
X8 slots have half the number of lanes of a x16 slot. Although the slots look the same and are of same size. You can see that there are low number of lanes(pins) at a closer inspection.
I didn't specify a pcie bandwidth because the different version of pcie have different bandwidth.
