    Would a GTX 460 768MB SLI config be bottlenecked by a AMD Phenom II X6 1055T possibly overclocked to about 3.8-4 GHz?

    YES/NO.

    Yes, it will bottleneck the system when it comes to lower resolutions and benchmarks. Synthetic things, of course.

    But no, in games, it should be perfectly fine. It's not the most efficient config, but it will work, for sure.

    If you're going SLI on the 460 GTX ,go with two 1GB cards. Presumably with SLI you are looking to go higher res and there has been problems with the 768MB cards stuttering due to memory limitation, just a heads up for ya :)
