If I plug a gtx 670 into my system, do you think my CPU will bottleneck it? If the answer is yes, which card should I go for?

No, your CPU won't be pegged at 100% when using a GTX670, so there won't be a bottleneck.

670sigh

i have an issue in new games w/ my i5 3570k and 2 670 FTW's i would be choppy @ 40fps w/ 50% gpu usage and 50% mem/ram usage when trying to push past 2x MSAA... and of corse the i5 is only @60-80% so i just :banghead: & keep "throwin parts at it" as we use to say in autoclass.


now that i have 3 27inch monitors my gpu actually hits 99%... @ 2xmsaa im ~1600mb on both cards... @ 4x 1990-2000(almost max) and of corse... lower fps all around
