Intel e6400 2.13@3.2 VS GTX260/ATI4890

Hello Ladies & Gents !!

I wanna change my old GF8800GS 384 to GTX260 or ATI4890 ... But I have a question - will my Intel e6400 2.13@3.2 bottleneck the video cards ???
(P.S My monitors max res. is 1280-1024)
And if it NOT, what will be better choiсe -

Gigabyte GTX 260 216SP Super Overclock http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/VGA/Products_Spec.aspx?ClassValue=VGA&ProductID=3183&ProductName=GV-N26SO-896I
OR
MSI 4890 1gb Cyclone http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=130&cat2_no=137&cat3_no=&prod_no=1850

In my opinion, Cyclone is bit faster , but pruduсe lots of heat (My case is not well ventilated)

Thanks !
