Hey guys, would an e4400 OC @2.93 bottleneck games with a Ati HD5770 1gb? I would be playing mostly source games at 1920x1080

yes it would, i think its a dual core right it would largely bottleneck it 2 core cpu's should be clocked at least 3.0ghz in order to eliminate some issues of bottlenecking better get a quad core or i7 cpu to fully unearth your gpu, because cpu demanding games like gta iv will be locked at 20-30fps with your current cpu

GTA 4 is a load of crap code. It's a bad example. Crysis is also a bad example to use. Crysis 2 will have lower system requirements than the original game.

Source games are not very demanding. The e4400 @ 2.93GHz will be fine for the HD 5770.
