Hello, I currently own and intel core I3-2105 (Sandybridge) cpu. I am looking into a gtx 660ti and was wondering if an i5 is better suited for it or if i should stick with my i3. does it make that big of a difference?

maybe a tad bit more memory since you have a 64bit, and possibly an ati card or two in crossfire

660Ti will not be held back by an i3. I built a system for a friend with that card and a new Ivy Bridge i3 and performance in games was similar to my i5 2500K.
