Default Bottlenecked CPU???

Hey guys. My stats on my rig are below but just in case.I have a Phenom 840 x4, 16 GB of 1600mhz DDR3, an HD5770, and I don't think much else matters for this question. Will my CPU be bottlenecked if I Crossfire that 5770 with a 6770?

i didnt think you could crossfire a 5770 with a 6770 I thought it had to be from the same family but you could use different models within it such as a 5750 with a 5770

The 5770 and 6770 are identical cards as far as features, and AMD says you CAN run them in CrossFire

16GB of RAM eh? Have fun with that waste for a while

We did answer your question. We ignored the CPU and talked about the GPUs.

Your CPU is fine.
