Upgrade to 6950, bottleneck question

Hey All,

So I am going to be upgrading the graphics in my system since I recently bought SWTOR. I'm currently running off of a Radeon HD 4200, so I definitely need to upgrade. I am looking at upgrading to a Radeon 6950. However, I have heard that these cards are not worth getting if your processor cannot handle it.

Here's what I have:
AMD Athlon II X4 645 ~3.1ghz
6gb ddr3 ram

Basically I want to know if my system will "bottleneck" the 6950, so I can decide if I should go with that or a lower card type.

If any other info is needed I can provide it!
