How bad will the bottleneck be with a Phenom II 965 3.8ghz and a 7950?

Depends on the game, but mostly pretty bad.

It's a great card, but you'll want to upgrade your CPU down the road.

It won't be holding your GPU back that much. About 10%.

I'm currently using a 6870 is it at least going too give better performance than that with the bottleneck?

doesn't work like that

Most games will be limited by the CPU. I wouldn't buy a 7950 unless you planned to upgrade the CPU and keep the GPU at some point.

I read this as " Pentium II 965 " and was completely and utterly confused...

Think this is a good sign that I should take a break.
