I personally wouldn't try it on that one but then again it isn't going to be much of one at all. So go ahead and enjoy your second card and enjoy sli.

In the end you need to make a choice before the GTX465 before it gets to be to rare and with a high markup. There is one going for a low price of $150 on newegg.

It really depends on what resolution you are going to be using. 1920x1080 & up would see less of a CPU bottleneck than say 1680x1050, and less so the more you turn up the graphic quality in games. I was really worried about this very issue when I decided to upgrade to a GTX 470 with my Phenom II x4 965, and oddly enough I get a higher avg framerate in Crysis with all settings on Very High, than with all settings on High.

No it wont be a bottleneck however if you are worried than get a normal clocked triple core and over clock it to higher speed
