i think you should be fine. the i3 2100 was quite capable. in some cases which the game can't use more than 2 cores the 2100 was able to out perform phenom II x4

absolutely NOT!

i never go above 50% with my 550ti overclocked like crazy so i am sure you won't hit above 75%.

Not unless you are gaming at extremely low res. or a few very CPU heavy games. Generally the 6850 will still be the bottleneck.

Agreed with above. It's a fine match up. Maybe BF3 MP will have a bit of a choke but that's the exception.
