Core i5 750 and AMD 7 Series gpu bottlenecks??

Last response: in CPUs

I am currently using a socket 1156 with an overclocked Core i5 750 at 3.2ghz, 4gb ddr3 1600, and a ATI 5870.

This system has been very good to me at running my fps at 1920x1080, but I am wondering if I will see any cpu/gpu bottlenecks with a next gen 7 series gpu, snd my current cpu?

While I could wait for Ivy Bridge, I would like to squeeze another year out of this system if possible.

So will my older CPU bottleneck a next gen 7 series AMD GPU?

Doubtful. Gaming only needs so much CPU power and your CPU more then qualifies. You shouldn't have much problems running even a GTX580 or 7970.
