I got a pretty good bottleneck. Just got a Radeon 7950 and love it. The bad thing is:
GPU load = Max of 30%
FPS = 15-30
Graphics maxed out on Crysis 2, the Witcher 2, Skyrim
CPU 100% all the time with sound cracking up.
CPU *GASP!!!!!* Athlon X2 at 1.9GHz LOL
Yes this must be the ultimate example of a CPU bottleneck.
Does anyone have a bottleneck as bad as me or worse? Tell everyone. :p 
PS. Yes I will be getting a new CPU as my GPU is running more like a 4870 with the CPU i got now.

I have an HD 6870 which seems to be bottlenecked by my Phenom II 1035t x6 @ 2.6GHz.

I'll have it replaced by the end of the year with a 3570k, the annoying thing is by the time I do replace it, I'll have had this
setup for almost a year.

All games that aren't CPU intensive run fine. If the map is too big or there are too many players/npc's on the screen I lag.

Gtx 460 SLI on a PCIE Gen 1 board, with a C2D @ 4GHz.

Beat that.
