Question about video cards

Well recently I wrote an email to one of the computer experts, questioning bottlenecking. My plan is to upgrade my current Sapphire Radeon HD6850 2GB to a 660 or 670, but the expert said that in 90% games are asking more from GPU rather than the CPU so he said I might as well get a 760. Seeing as the GTX 760 is quite cheap in my country, I thought I'd start saving up for it, but then again another friend of mine said I'll get the biggest bottleneck ever with my current PC, so I'd want to hear your guys' opinion about this. My PC specs:
Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD4P Motherboard
AMD Phenom II x4 965 OC'd @ 3.6GHz w/ Cooler Master V8 CPU Cooler
AMD Memory Entertainment Edition 8GB DDR3
Sapphire Radeon HD6850 2GB
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1
Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Case
Cooler Master BC 120mm blue LED fans x2

So, I'd like to know if I would really get bottleneck if I placed a GTX 760 in my machine.

It will be a little bit of a bottleneck but nothing that you will notice in-game. If you playing a really CPU dependent game then you may not get the performance you're after, but playing FPS games etc, you should be absolutely fine with the 760. Don't worry about it. :)

Perhaps a little more overclocking on CPU is needed? I might bump the speed up to 3.8GHz.

Nothing but good can come from overclocking your CPU, as long as it's stable. I say go for it! :D

Appreciate this very much, I'll start saving up for the card.
