    i7 4930k with 32GB of RAM. Which NVIDIA card is a good match and not overkill?

      I have a GTX 570 that was a gift and is much improved over what I had before. If I decide to upgrade this video card what should I consider as an equitable match when taking my CPU and RAM into consideration. I'm maxed out on RAM at 32GB, albeit DDR3. The CPU is designed to overclock and was burned in and tested stable using Prime95 at 3.8GHz which is just below the max turbo frequency of 3.9GHz. It is currently running at the stock speed of 3.4GHz, however.


      I don't want to be driving a Porsche 928 in rush hour when a Fiat 500 will do (borrowing a wonderful analogy from ).


      Thanks in advance.
