My System Specs

Default Will I bottleneck a 6850/5770?

So I want to upgrade my gfx to something better, was thinking on a 6850 or 5770 but i want to know if I will see decreased performance because of the rest of my system.

e6500 @ 3.8ghz (10x380 1.36v/2.9 stock)
2gb mushkin silverline 5-5-5-12
gigabyte ep43 ud3l
coolermaster 460w psu, will most likely upgrade psu too

6850/5770

So what do you guys think? Any other suggestions if the above gpu's are too much for the 6500 is welcome and offers from the green team too.

at 3.8 it shouldn't bottle neck enough that it matters a hell of a lot. You could always get a gts 250/450 if your res allows good gaming from these cards.just my 2 cents.
