Will my CPU Bottleneck my 5770?

I am getting a Sapphire or XFX 5770 really soon. I have a Intel e5200 running at 2.93ghz.
I will OC it to about 3.2 when i get my new cooler.
Is it a bottleneck at the moment for upcoming games like MAFIA 2?

    This thread basically says that an e5200 at 3.2 or 3.3ghz would be a good match for a 5770.

    There is no way to build a perfectly balanced PC, some components will always bottleneck others, but some matches can come close.

    The system requirements for the game can be found here, you should be fine for the minimum requirements.

  2. Provided the games you can play are not multi-threaded and CPU intensive (ie, Microsoft flight simulator X) you will be fine. Basically, most games the CPU will not be the bottleneck.
