My brother is running an OCed Phenom II 955 at 3.8 Ghz. Currently he is using a 6850. Will a 7850 be bottleneck by the cpu in any way?

No I had a 1090t @ 3.8 and a 670GTX and had no bottle at all so he is good to go.

Depends on game.

Some CPU intensive games would suffer with the Phenom II (Guild Wars 2 on max settings for example).

Others like Battlefield 3 won't bottleneck even with a GTX680/HD 7970.
