Default What would be the bottleneck?

I was considering getting a new video card, but which one would you guys recommend based on my system, the one seen in the sig? I don't think a 6800 GT or something would be wise because I think the rest of the system would bottleneck it. What card would be good that is about on the same level as the rest of the computer?

Personally, I don't think your current system would bottleneck it. But that's my opinion.

Get the 9800pro or the normal 6800, they would run well on your system and should run games smoothly.

Thank you all for the replies. Does anyone know when the 6600 series will be available for purchase?
