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.
