I'm purchasing a HD 7870 graphics card, but i am worried that my Phenom II X4 965 BE will bottleneck the graphics card. If this is true, what CPU would you guys recommend. (Preferably AMD)

No, it shouldn't, but if you want to upgrade, you could get an 8350. Has the same performance as a i5 3570k in game and the near-same multithreaded performance as a 3770k.

The fx 6300 is a great card and I have seen it on sale for less than $130. It would certainly not bottleneck the 7870, and it overclocks well.
