Well atm this is my system build

Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 Vapor-X Video Card
i7 870 overclocked to 3.4
4GB DOMINATOR GT DUAL-DDR3 2000MH
1TB WD CAVIAR BLACK WD1002FAEX, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64MB CACHE (7200rpm)
CORSAIR 1000W MODULAR PSU


I have a 24 inch monitor that runs at 1980x1240. I was thinking of upgrading my GPU but i dont want to end up buying a high end card to find out that my CPU or any other component is not up to the task.

Would I be better of investing in another 5870 for a few years and run them in crossfire or buying a new 7000 series card? or even buying a whole new system ?

Any advice would be greatly receive.

Would any of the 7000 series bottle neck with the CPU speed or can I pretty much pick what ever I like? ??
