Upgrading GPU to 7950, possible bottlenecks?

So my current configuration is:
AMD 1100t x6 overclocked to 3.8 on auto voltage (going higher later, have a watercooling system)

For graphics i have a radeon 5770 and a 6770 in crossfire, and im pushing out to 3 20 inch monitors at 4800X900.

Im planning to upgrade to a 7950, and im watching for good deals on some 23-24 inch monitors with at least 1080p.

Is my CPU going to bottleneck the 7950? will i have any real problems with going to a higher resolution?

I doubt it. At 3x1080p resolution you'll be GPU limited. Even with the 1100t

I run a x6 @ 3.8 & 6950 for 5040x1050, 7950 will obviously be faster, and I can play most new titles at decent frame rates. COD BO2 - pretty much stable @ 60fps at that resolution with all eyecandy on high. Not a demanding game, just an example. I had 3x1080p sold and went with higher quality dells 3x 1680x1050, definitely like the aspect ratio better for eyefinity.

You'll be fine with the 7950 and your CPU, if the FPS aren't high enough get another one.
