    I don't think it will be a bottleneck, I was running a core 2 duo E6550 2333mhz clocked to 3000mhz with an ATI HD5750 and everything seemed to work fine.
    I'm now running a core 2 quad Q6600 overclocked to 3200mhz and don't see much diffrence at all in games that only use 1 or 2 CPU cores.

    No. Your card will perform adequately.

    With a 6870 you will probably see some bottlenecking, especially in newer games like Battlefield.

    You might to try to OC your processor a bit, if you feel comfortable doing so.

    Never say 'I'm going to overclock the cpu to x.xghz', it's always, 'I'm going to see if I can get it to x.xghz'

    It might indeed be a better idea to take things slow when it comes to overclocking your CPU :p.

    Unless you already know what your processor can do off course.

    I had my e8400 to 4.5GHz pretty easy without much tweaking, at least 4 GHz should be easily obtainable.

    I'd suggest getting a newer video card tho if you're keeping that system around for gaming.

    An overclocked E7500 shouldn't bottleneck a 6870 too much, should be okay for gaming.

    1600x900 or greater it shouldn't matter too too much.
