I know in video games the cpu can often bottleneck a graphics card.
With hashing in mind will a pentium 4 bottle neck one 5850 or more?

No, the CPU will not be a bottleneck. AMD Sempron 140 is fine.

If I helped you in some way, and you feel obligated to do so, you can tip me some coin!

No, all the work is done by the GPU. There will be little to no load on the CPU if you're using a GPU miner.

wrong, if you can't dedicate at least one core to all GPUs installed, you will suffer a penalty 15% or more

any cpu will do, you need to dedicate one core to GPUs if you plan to use cpu miners + gpu miners

pentium 4 is worthless junk that consumes way too much power

cpu will NOT idle, read more topics, if you have 2 or more cards it will use 100% for sure, for one card it depends on OS and luck...
