Its base clock is 3.0 GHz and max turbo boost is upto 3.2 GHz. However, it goes upto 3.4-5 GHz when overclocked. Check my benchmark screenshot you can see it's running at 3502 MHz in CPU-Z :)

Gtx660 TI.
It can handle an Gtx670 too.
All single-gpu cards are supported though.

The strongest might be the GTX780, it would probably be a little bottleneck.

Currently, you cpu has a slight bottleneck on the gpu, so my advice, if you have enough ++funds, go for a FX-6100 :)

It is not wise to recommend changing the platform, the i3 3220 can support up to a HD7950, the issue is that in some games (especially future) have only two cores represent a "bottleneck cores" (depending of the game / mode / settings) for example in crysis 3 or BF3 multiplayer (servers 64 players); Raheel, you will maintain the monitor 720p o you will change to 1080p?.

If you change to 1080p, then make more sense to buy a better GPU, only if your needs will become more demanding graphic quality; I do not think that by now you need the i5 3330, I actually look pretty balanced your PC (i3/HD7750/720p/4GB adds another 4GB ram … if you want), So the day you bought a monitor 1080p (if you want) also changes graphics, but you'd better wait for your i3 was exceeded by demand in the games (to change it to an i5). :D

the HD6670 will be a bottleneck for the cpu, try going with a HD6870 or HD7770, or the upcoming HD7790
