Hello, 
 
my brother just purchased a 670 ftw (of course I forced him to go EVGA). I am just wondering if his i7 920 @ 2.66ghz will hang with the gpu? His computer is a dell so his bios is locked and so he can't overclock. 
 
Either way I'm it will be a massive step up in performance vs his GTS 240...right? Hope I didn't steer him wrong!

    my 980 doesnt seem to bottleneck mine 680 at stock speeds.  It constantly stays above 90% gpu usage during games.   of course its at 3.3

    the 920 is still a very powerful cpu!  the 670ftw vs a 240 will make your bro very very very happy.  Enjoy the power of EVGA!!

    You will be fine if its just a single card, but if you add 2 of them in SLI then you might be limited.
     
    and from a GT 240? hell yes, massive difference.
     
    Just be sure the power supply in his Dell system can handle it.

    Thank you for the replies and sorry about my nearly incomprehensible original post. Should have read over that before posting it..lol.
     
    Yeah, I am worried about his dell power supply being able to handle the card as well. I have a spare psu for him though, a corsair 750 TX. I think that should do the trick, right?

    He won't have a bottleneck. He will, however, enjoy the hell out of his new evga 670

    YES it is going to bottleneck a 670. I can't believe so many of you actually think it wont
