7870 will it bottleneck?

Hi, I am currently using a i5 3570k chip with a xfx 7870 crossfire (2GB) and I am w8ing for my next 7870 card to arrive, but as I've been reading a few posts online on different forums I would like to know whether or not there would be a bottleneck effect with both these cards.

and please do correct me if I'm wron but isnt bottleneck basically a phenomenon that occurs if the processor aren't able to read enough info to the gfx card, hence the gfx card wont be used to its full potential?!?

Thanks

    This video will answer ANY question you got about bottlenecks

    The i5-3570k is actually just about the best you can get for your money when gaming. It won't bottleneck. :)
  2. NO chance
  3. I'm confused. Are you saying you have 7870cf and you're buying a 3rd 7870?
  4. no I have 1 7870 and my next is on its way this very moment :D
    a third would be...uneccesary. Would much rather buy a 7970 but like I said; as I already have a 7870 I will buy another cheap one
  5. Ok that makes much more sense. I just got a 2560x1440 monitor and am thinking of buying another 7870. There isn't too many benchmarks on it though. Any chance you could let me know how it works out for you?
  6. yeah sure, btw, I found this video on youtube a while ago
