First time using this but ill be quick.

I'm gonna step up my 2 9800gtx+'s to 2 gtx260.

Will my current PSU Be enough? (Corsair 750w)

Running: i7 920@ 3.8 ghz, 6 gb OCZ Gold @ 1333.

Also, will my cpu create a bottleneck with the new video cards?

An i7 920 at 3.8 GHz will NOT Bottleneck any card out there today, so don't worry about that at all. Theres not really any improvement in gaming with a CPU thats faster than that one!
Your 2xgtx260's ought to be fine with that PSU- its a good quality one and will have no problem running those GPUs.

unless you getting the 2 gtx 260's cheaply i'd consider the ati 5870 the sli 260's will be 10-15% ahead but the 5870 will use much less power and supports dx11

The 750 should be NO problem at all. with 60A on the +12V rail, and even the manufacturer recommending a 700W 50A +12V rail, shouldn't be an issue. Most PSU calculators have a fairly large cushion built in, even the manufacturer recommendations generally are fairly cushioned.
