    What is your CPU? From what I see, your board is from 2007, so your system will bottleneck the card, so it isnt worth just upgrading the GPU.

    He might have a 775 Quad-core processor. That should support a GTX660Ti.

    Yes, but it will bottleneck it. Even newer Core 2 Quads from 2009-2010 bottleneck modern graphics cards.

    I reckon an overclocked Core2Quad shouldn't bottleneck a GTX660Ti.

    It definitely can support it, but it wont perform as well as under a modern quad core CPU.

    Of course. But he doesn't necessarily need to upgrade his CPU/MOBO just yet.

    Keep in mind though, we are speculating, we dont even know if he has a Core 2 Quad. It can be a Pentium for all we know.
