Hi, was wondering about this.
So i have a Phenom x4 965 B.E.
Wanting to get a 6850 now,then get a new motherboard in the future and crossfire with a 6870.
Was wondering if the crossfire'd cards would get bottlenecked by my CPU?

No bottleneck if you are going to crossfire get another 6850 buy a more expensive card will still only give you 2 6850's

What is your current card?
PSU?
Your CPU is still fast enough to running dual cards, so don't worry about that...

6850+6870= 2 6850's in Crossfire. No bottlenecks though.

My current card is a 5570.
My PSU is a an Apevia 500 Watt with 34 amps on the 12/v rail.
My motherbaord and PSU will need to be upgraded when i get the other card in the future.
How does a 6870 in crossfire equal to another 6850, how does that work?

Just because you can mix a 6870 + 6850 does not mean its a good idea.
You should crossfire the same gpu.
