Build:

MOBO: Ma-770T-UD3P
RAM: G Skill 2x2GB 1600
HD: WD Caviar Green 500 GB
PSU: Corsair GX 750w
CPU: Phenom II x3 720 BE OC'd @ 3.2 GHz

I am replacing my HD 4870 1GB with a HD 6950 2GB. Will there be any bottlenecks with my CPU clocked @ 3.2 GHz

If yes, what percentage bottleneck am I looking at, and can I OC my CPU to the point of almost 0% bottleneck.

Any other bottlenecks in my system?

In most games no, there will be no bottleneck. In a game like BF3, there may be a slight bottleneck but it shouldn't be too much. OC your CPU to the highest you can as long as temps and voltages are within spec, and you will need a good CPU cooler if you don't have one.

Sometime later, I now have a similar cooler @3.5 Ghz with about 40 degrees at load. games run perfectly on new 6950 1GB OC by Gigabyte .

thanks for input
