my current graphics card is HD4770, 4gb RAM, ASUS P5K SE/EPU, 600w PSU, 22" monitor
will my E8200 @ 3.6Ghz bottleneck a HD6850? will there be a big difference?
i was thinking of playing upcoming games hopefully on a decent settings like AC:Revelation, CoD:mw3, BF3 with good fps like 30

You should be fine for most apps/games. Of course, your system is rather dated. Might be time to start thinking about updating your rig.

No no no your are fine with what you have and at 3.6ghz you got a little wiggle room even for a higher end card but sli and crossfire may as well be out of the option. I got a e7200 that I nuked to 3.53ghz and it holds a gtx 460 up just fine.
