PSUs can't bottleneck your computer, just don't get another terrible PSU and you should be fine.

Just get a quality 750w. I would personally get an Antec truepower new or a corsair TX/HX but the antec is just as good as the HX and better than the TX and usually cheaper. Good luck!

Short anwer: You would be hard pressed to notice any difference between x8 + x8 and x16 + x16.

You'll be good to go. Also recommend the Corsair. HX's are great if you want modular.

1. A Corsair HX750 will be more than enough for a 6950 CF and your i5 2500k.

2. It will not heavily bottleneck it, but OC'ing it to +4Ghz should help a bit.

3. You'll be fine, go for it!
