Yeah it will bottleneck in games like CS:S, but it will be alot better than your ti4200.
I own one with a 2.4ghz p4 and I only get about %60 of the performace.
If you are building a new computer then wait on geting a new video card.
The 6800 won't be the choke on that system; the CPU will.
Be wise to go to at least a 3.0ghz Intel then you should be fine. But be wise to go ahead and just build a new PC.
