Default Yet Another GPU bottlenecking Question

Hey guys:

I have an MSI GTX 480 coming my way in a few days, and was wondering if my i3-540 cpu @ 4.6 GHz would be sufficient enough to drive this card for BF3. I figure I'll run this system hard for the forseable future until I really need an upgrade.

For BF3 it might be a bit of a bottleneck because it utilizes multicore processors, otherwise i wouldn't think so.
