Hello, I'm planning to buy a new graphics card, the GTX 680 DirectCU 2 Top. I want to know if the Phenom II x6 1090t is going to bottleneck the GPU..

My current rig:

Msi 770 C45.
AMD Phenom II X6 190T @ 3.2GHz with the stock cooler.
Sapphire HD 6970.
500GB HDD.
Bequiet 600w PSU.
Kingston 4GB ram. (going to upgrade that with corsair vengeance 8gb)
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
Samsung syncmaster (1080p)

Probably just a bit - overclocking it will help but you'll have to spend some more on new thermal compound & a cooler.

Should I overclock it to 3.8 GHz with the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO on it?
