Hello all this is my first time here!
I have a few questions if anyone could help it'd b very appreciated!
So i'm thinking of purchasing either a Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or 660 ti.
The 660 is ~$229.00 and the 660 ti is ~$279.00 both with 2GB of GDDR5.
I know the ti is obviously the upper level of the two, but is it really worth the extra ~$50?
My current card is the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB so this will be a huge step either way.
My goal is to be able to play any new games (i.e. AC3, BF3, Skyrim, yada yada) at High-Max settings.
Now my CPU and MOBO are a little lacking.
System Specs:
- CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 630 (Quad) ~2.8GHz
- RAM: 8192MB
- MOBO: MSI MS-7623 (Don't really know exactly which it is >_>)
- PSU: Corsair HX850 (850 watts)

I'm rather noobish when it comes to the MOBO so if you need more info let me know!
Also will my CPU bottleneck this Card?

Thank you so much in advance i need a lot of help!
