Will a 6600GT bottleneck? Yes. Will a 7800GT bottleneck? No.

It depends on your budget, if all you can afford is a 6600GT, then you'll get 6600GT performance.

Take me for example, I have a processor thats slightly better than a FX-55, but with a 6600GT, I can't run BF2 on high. (I can, but 30-40fps.)
