Default GTX 570 bottleneck?

Hey guys,
I just bought a Geforce GTX 570 1.3GB videocard, but i am a little worried my system could bottleneck it... i got an AMD Phenom X4 @3.5Ghz and 8gigs of RAM. BTW my gaming resolution is 1920x1080.

What do you guys think?

Thanks in advance.

At your 19X10 resolution with AA the Phenom II you have should be fine, games are more GPU limited than CPU limited these days. (with a few exceptions, and RTS games)

If you play shooters mainly your current cpu will only be a limitation if you add a second 570, for one it's fine. Enjoy, and avoid the Bulldozer. You have a better cpu.

You're fine. No bottleneck with that configuration.

Enjoy.

Thank you all for the answers , i just got my card yesterday and it rocks!!, i've tried so far Crysis 2 and it runs smooth as silk . By the way i also run 3dmark 11 and i got 5297 in performance setting, is that about right?

Original Crysis using 32xAA and extreme config rocks too.

The new AMD Buldozer looks good with 8 cores and 16 threads ,but until games can make use of all those threads ,it just looks good ,plus the price can be beat for a 8 core CPU ,but with games right now you are better off just getting a Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz .They overclock like cazy 4.5gigs most of the time and some will do even more ocourse with a voltage bumb.
