Default GeForce GTX 470 and Core i7 920

The Core i7 920 is currently the dog of the Core i7 lineup, but is it fast enough to handle a GeForce GTX 470? I was thinking of dropping in a Core i7 960 or 970 in this rig, but I don't know if it would blow away the 920 enough to justify the cost. I can't overclock this rig, so I'm stuck with the default speeds.
Core i7 2600 @ 3.7GHz
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked 941 MHz
1TB Seagate HDD 7200 RPM 32MB Cache
16X BluRay-RW drive
Dell 30-inch U3014 monitor
Dell speakers
