Is my CPU bottlenecking?

Since CPUs are used for running things or doing fast calculations and stuff and not graphics, is my cpu bottlenecking? When I play Nexuiz, I max out all the graphics with my 7850 and get 60fps but when I start a 32 man game and I'm near like 10 AIs(bots) it starts dropping to 20-30fps then when nobody is around its back to a smooth 60fps.

yes then the a8-3870k is def a bottleneck for the 7850. Since there is no upgrade path left on the FM1 platform the only thing you can do is overclock the CPU and your fps should increase.

Do you know the average benchmark result for 3DMark firestrike for the 7850? I tested my system and I got a 3900. Is that good?

3DMark isn't a good indicator for CPU bottleneck as it's designed to scale well with CPU speed.
Don't worry about your CPU.
It's not the fastest but it's more than decent.
Just overclock it a bit and enjoy.

I'm on a good 400w antec psu and already have a 7850, would overclocking be pushing it?
