Hey, so I posted a similar question earlier but I just want to make sure. I currently have a AMD Phenom 2 X6 1090t, I want to upgrade my current graphics card (XFX Radeon 6950 1GB) to a XFX 7950. Could the graphics card bottleneck the CPU, or should this be ok? Oh, and is there any other manufacturer that you would recommend besides XFX?

That is probably fine, there shouldn't be a bottleneck. Look at sapphire cards as well.
Definitely not. The CPU is very good. And I wouldn't recommend sapphire if XFX is out there and at a close price, had a bad experience with them before. Look for the Gigabyte/ASUS ones, they are very nice as well and should be put into consideration.
