Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question but here goes,

I am running a Sapphire ATi Radeon 4870X2 and also running a AMD Phenom 2 X4 940BE. I have 4 gigs of DDR-2 800 ram (Corsair Dominator) Windows XP , and Windows Vista.

My question is would my CPU be a bottleneck to this video card ? I currently have it overclocked to 3.4 GHZ on air cooling. I don't want to go any higher than that on Air so that is where I stay. Just curious if anyone could help me.

You shouldn't be bottlenecking it any more than any non-i7 processor would at that speed. You have a nice little system there, loved my 4870 X2s I always thought they deserved a better rep. The title "2nd fastest card" is nice and all, but I prefer "all the card you need right now and then some".
