Will my Athlon ii x4 630 bottleneck my 7950?

I'm stuck with an AM3 mobo, and am trying to stay on a budget after a long needed GPU upgrade, so I really don't want to have to spend another $70-100 on a new mobo to then upgrade my CPU as well. I've seen some Phenom x4s on ebay going for around $70... but will it be worth it? Really having a hard time deciding here, any help is appreciated!

    Yes it will bottleneck the GPU a little. Try Going for Phenom II X6 1090t or a Phenom II X4 955/965/970, with a little overclocking they should be fine.
