Quad Core proc+ Intel ddr3 mob + HD7870 = Bottleneck

I am planning to buy HD7870 for my DG41KR (LGA775, 4GB ddr3 ) with quad core processor (Q8400)...
Would it bottleneck my GPU??

  1. No I have a q8300 and a 6850hd and my cpu is chugging compared to my graphics card. To bad for us we can't really upgrade to much on cpu side.

    overclock your cpu i used to get my q9400 2.66 up to 3.4 will undervolting it, q8300 should be able to go close overclocked i would say that your gpu will be the bottleneck when you do that for sure
