Q9650 Rx 470 Good Combo?

There is an old PC I have and it has a Q6700, and I was wondering if I should get a new Q9650 (67$Cad) and an RX 470 as well (230$CAD).

Would there be any bottlenecks?

For CPU-bound games such as Cities: Skylines and Besiege, you'll almost definitely run into bottlenecks. The Q9650 is good for an LGA775 CPU, but not quite up to snuff with a modern i5. That being said, I wouldn't expect too many problems. Saying this having run those games on a Q8300 and GTX 750 Ti.

Would games such as CSGO and Battlefield 4, possibly the new Call of Duty games run fine?

Yeah, those should all be fine.
