Hi, I have an AMD Athlon 64 X2 proc, will this bottleneck a radeon 4850 for games? Plan on running at 1680x1050 resolution. I can go up to a 6000+ is this a better choice? Don't want to have to upgrade my whole motherboard if possible. Thanks

I don't think so. Just make sure to keep those temps low, because both your CPU and GPU run pretty hot.
