Looking to get a new card for GTA V, Don't want to spend any more then £150 so the 660 is the one im looking at...

My current specs:

MSI Z77MA-G45
i5-3570K (IVY)
8GB 1600MHz
HD6870 (1 GB)
Be Quiet 630w (also need to know if this will be fine?)
Win 7 64 bit

also should I be looking into an i7 or will the i5 be fine/just as good?

Well they haven't actually even announced it yet, so your best bet is a second hand Xbox 360 :D

But realistically....assume it's going to have similar performance to Max Payne 3, so i'm sure a 660 would be fine. You might even find the 6870 works well enough because Max Payne 3 runs fine on my system and I have a 1GB 6870.

Either way it needs to be a lot better optimised than GTA IV, as that ran terribly.

Ask again in 18months when rockstar remember about pc gamers :o

Tbh if it's half the mess gta4 is, what card you use won't matter too much.

OP, I think you should wait till they actually confirm a PC release date before getting a card. The PC release is (optimistically) 8 to 12 months after the console release, so you have a loooooong wait ahead of you, and will be able to put that 150 quid to better use given that newer cards will be out by then.
