Hey guys, I am planning on adding another graphics card to my rig and was wondering if it might bottleneck.

This is what currently sits in my tower:

Processor: i7-860 2.80Ghz
Motherboard: Gigabyte P55A-UD3R P55
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB
GPU: HD 5870 1GB
PSU: Antec Earthwatts EA-750watt

Hope to hear all your thoughts, cheers.

There will always be a "bottleneck", but if you're asking if your CPU will hold back 2x hd5870, I wouldn't worry about it.

Yeah couldn't think of a better word, but to clarify I was wondering if my current set-up could handle another card.
