Athlon II X4 620 Bottleneck a 5850?

Like the title says, I am wondering if my 620 will bottleneck a 5850.

Ive been thinking about upgrading to Win7 to get the most of the 5850 and if so, I will upgrade to 6GB and I play all of my games at 1680x1050 and I always put at least 2x AA (cant stand jaggy lines).

Thanks for reading and taking the time to reply.

    No it really shouldn't pose to much of a bottleneck. The lack of L3 cache on the chip will affect it to some extent. If i were you i would overclock the cpu at least to 3.0ghz+. Remember when you upgrade to W7 get the 64bit edition, since you have 6gig of memory.
