200$ Vga for I5 3570k

Hello, i need video card suggestions for I5 3570k cpu, from what i heard on weaker cards like gtx 460 ( it's older ) it will bottleneck ( correct me if i'm wrong ) So i need a video card that's 200$~ and wouldn't bottleneck if that's possible .. my mobo is asrock z77 extreme4 if it helps.

Nvidia: GTX 660

AMD: HD 7850

Look at either of those lines and pick one out, they are similar performers

I'd take the 660 over the 7850, but at my favorite online vendor (www.newegg.com) the 660 cards start at about $210, while the lowest priced 7850s are at $165.

Going above $200, the 7870 is better than the 7850.

Where to draw the line?

The price range is pretty significant, that's for sure. When I give someone a recommendation when on a budget, I try to suggest a higher level component if it's within $20-30 bucks of the original budget. Quite a few people say, "I have X amount of money for this piece" when in fact, they could add a few dollars to that and step up to a much better component. It's easy to spot someone with a firm budget, and in those cases I try to stay within that figure. I like to give people options, rather than tell them what they can get, so they can make the decision on what to get. In this case, if the budget is firm, it's the 7850 all the way, or maybe find a deal on a 7870. Otherwise, a good deal on an OC'd 660 would be really nice, especially when you factor in the better driver support.

What is this reviewer talking about with reguard to the 3570k ?
As all the other reviews say, this baby runs hot. If you don't have a lot of patience, or the knowledge to de-lid and solder over the cheap paste used on the heat spreader.... It`s a comment from a review on Newegg.

I5 3570K @4.5GHZ - is this ok?
Hi, Recently rebuilt into an intel system from my old AMD 1100T. I've overclocked the I5 3570K to 4.5GHZ using the Asrock AXTU tuner. I was expecting (and dreading) increasing the voltage however I have not needed to do this? Also my temps using the Nocura DH-14 I installed are only about 40...

I was just looking at random cpu's in cpubenchmarks.net and found something really interesting.The FX-6300 is 9 ranks and 301 points MORE than the 3570k. I thought that the FX-8350 was the AMD equivalent. Is it just me or is this actually true?...
