Hi
If I were to get a x5670 to pair with my gtx960 2gb will it be ok or will it bottleneck the card?
I am currently using i5 650 with gtx 960 and it bottlenecks the card

For one - the Xeon you post is an LGA 1366 Socket type "cpu" - the I5 650 is an LGA 1156 socket chip. Not compatible. At least MB mfg/model would help if you wanna upgrade. Its possible to upgrade systems to increase their longevity - sometimes its not worth it, sometimes you can get a lot out of them!

I was going to upgrade the motherboard n all but now I have decided to go for i5 4th gen n just be on the safe side
