I'm looking at buying an HD 5970. I have an i5-650 OC to 4.2 GHz. I was wondering if my CPU would bottleneck my GPU significantly. If so, would an i5-750 also bottleneck it?

Thanks in advance

With a card that fast, most CPUs would bottleneck it. Get xfire 5850s instead, they're more oc'able, cheaper, and run faster then the 5970 in most cases. With the $50~ saved, you could probly get a i7 920. Your i5-650 would definitely bottleneck it, and the i5-750 would bottleneck it, but not as much as your i5-650.
