E5200 bottleneck?

I have a e5200 overclocked to 3.5Ghz and 4Gb or RAM, can anyone estimate for me the performance hit I would get by using an ati 5850 due to processor bottleneck, if any at 1680 x 1050?

  1. Well, with an E5200 at 3.5GHz, I don't think there will be too much of a bottleneck at that resolution (I feel there would still be a few minor bottlenecks). However there will be on games which use three or more cores.
  2. It would depend on the game. But given the i3 can run most games with a HD 5870 without much bottleneck, you'll be fine-ish. It'll bottleneck from the lack of L2 but that's about it.
