first of all, i'm dutch so my english may not be 100% accurate :) 

i am planning to get a EVGA GeForce GTX 480 1.5 gb
but...
i think my processor ( pentium dual core e6700 3.2 ghrz) will bottleneck the performance of this great card :/ 
soooo, do you know if this will happen and do you have any advice about this pls reply :)

you're fine unless you play a cpu intensive game such as skyrim or metro 2033.

if you get a i5-2400 it won't bottleneck it might not even bottleneck with a i3 2120 though i am unsure of that
