HD 4600 series bottleneck

I will buy a new PSU & Graphics Card but I am afraid about bottlenecking.
1-HD 4650 & PSU= $90
2-HD 4670 & PSU= $120
Do you think any part of my actual system will bottleneck the HD 4670/4650 or viceversa?
Here is my system:
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma 2.7GHz @ 3.0GHz 95W
Motherboard: Asus M2N68-AM SE2
Memory: APACER 2GB RAM PC-6400
HDD: WD CaviarBlue 320 GB, SATA 3 Gb/s, 7200 rpm

only 2gb of ram? that may be the only bottleneck. if you are still using xp it should be ok.

The minimum I'd recommend for gaming is a 4670, I agree with the above post about the memory, another 2GB will be a good/worthwhile upgrade.

AT first I thought my CPU would be the bottleneck but from what I know 2gb of ram is good for gaming

depends what games you play and what OS your using.
