Will E6420 be bottleneck to Radeon 5770?

I am thinking about upgrading my computer. I want to buy 2 more DDR2 ram and radeon 5770 to replace 8800 GTS.

I am wondering if my CPU will be bottleneck.

Here's my current spec.

CPU – INTEL E6420 (No OC yet, I am using auto OC feature supported by mainboard)
Mother Borad - GIGABYTE GA-P35C-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35, supports DDR2/DDR3
Memory - G.Skill 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800(PC2 6400), 4-4-4-12, 2.0V-2.1V
GPU - EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR 8800GTS
PSU - SEASONIC SS-550HT

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.

    It won't bottleneck the 5770 card.

    It won't bottleneck 5770 when it will be overclocked a bit.

    Like a 3Ghz OC will give you awesome performance.

    Before buying a 5770 just OC your processor and see if you get a boost in games with 8800GTS...

    Getting 2GB RAM is a good idea :)

    An OC to 3GHz won't give him awesome performance only if he games at 1024x768.

    Upgrade to 5770 won't give awesome performance if he games at 1024X768 either!!

  6. My LCD monitor's resolution is 1650x1050. LCD TV's 1900x1080. In this case, is it worth it?
