I currently am running an AMD Athlon X2 Duel Core 5200+ with 4 gb ram, 650 watt psu, and a XFX Nvidia 8500GT.

I'm thinking about upgrading my graphics card, and I found a nice used Gigabyte 9800 GX2 with a good price on craigslist. How much would I be bottlenecking my system, or in other terms, how much would my processor limit my video card's power?

Thanks in advance

A whole lot. My GTX260 is suffocating with my 5600+... I gained something like one step higher AA and AF, 3 FPS more from my 4850 when I got this card.
