Hi, im planning on getting a 5870 and wanted to know if the intel Q9300 2.5 ghz c2q will bottleneck the gpu, if yes how will the frames be affected and how high will i need to overclock it to get rid of the bottleneck.

Thanks

Not at all. It's a quad-core which is more than enough for a modern video card.
