No, a 955 won't bottleneck ANY GPU as long as your achieving a frame-rate your comfortable with. Sure it won't be spiking at 99% usage 24/7, but you can keep it for a future build, where it will really be pushed.
No, the bottleneck still exists even if you get the FPS you wanted.
Sure you might get the fps you want with today's games. But what about tomorrow's games that will inevitably require even more powerful CPU performance?
Again, there's no way a Phenom II setup lasts 2 years for gaming.
Anyone who picks a 1100T over a 2500K for anything other than encoding is clueless.
