You shouldn't bottleneck but why go for the GTX470? Their are far better cards out their for the money and power.

What is your budget?

i think i go with the 6870 acc. to hwcompare.com its prety much the same in performence, and less power hungry, thanks to "purple stank"

Thought what I thought.On the Phenom ii and Athlon ii chips you start to hit a wall at around >4.2ghz.
