Will my CPU bottleneck my GPU?

Hi. I was thinking of buying an XFX Core Edition Radeon HD 7870 for my PC. I wanted to know if my CPU will bottleneck that GPU. (Forgive me if I don't post enough info or misuse terms. I'm not extremely computer savvy.)

My CPU is an AMD Phenom II X4 945 3Ghz. My RAM is 4GB DDR3 running at 665 MHz. My motherboard does have a PCI Express x16 slot.

Thanks for reading and I appreciate any help I can get!
