It shouldn't be too bad if you keep your E5300 at that 3.47 Ghz. Buy the 4870 and then save for the E8400 to run at 4 Ghz but with a 1600 bus which is much faster than your 1066 bus.

My 4850 bottlenecks my E8500 @ 3.8. The wolfdale is ~ 80% usage during most intense games such as fallout 3 and I can get kinda choppy at certain points. I do believe your 4870 would be bottlenecking, sir.

A E6300 at 2.8GHz (same as a E5300 OCed to 2.8GHz) somewhat bottlenecks a 4890 in certain games according to Tom's balanced PC review.
A 3.47GHz E5300 should have no problem with a 4870 or a 4890 for that matter.

My E5300 OCed gets about the same benchmark scores as my E8400 @ stock 3.0GHz.

I had a 9800GTX+ and E8400 and played Crysis on everything set to high or very high (Post-Processing set to high), AAx2, and got an average of 35fps.

With a 4870, you'll probably get 40fps average with my settings, and more or less depending on how you tweak it.
