will a 955x4@3.6ghz bottleneck a pair 5870's?

title says it all, also will a 955x4@3.6ghz bottleneck a stock single gtx580?

Two 5870's? Yes. A single GTX 580? Not so much. There will probably be a bit of a performance hit on the latter, but it's an upgrade no matter what.

I have the same thought in my head. Will my 955 X4 C2 bottleneck my GTX 560 Ti? cause my GTX 560 Ti is @ 1000/2000/2100 1.150v

No. But overclocking your core and especially your NB will help. My 955 runs trifire very well, bottleneck is only noticed in heavy particle rendering scenes.
