    I am thinking of getting one of the new 5870 cards.

    Would i see a major bottle neck if i put it into my current setup seen below?

    Would my CPU E8400 @ 4Ghz be ok?

    Of course it's not going to bottleneck, your CPU is faster than any commercially available dual core processor :p

    But what about his case? I'm sure that is limiting his max FPS. :D

    Get an SSD - the hard drive is the only thing that will bottleneck your system!

    I wouldn't bother as it will only slightly improve your loading times, your spinpoint is fine for gaming.
