Will my i5-4670K bottleneck my GTX 780 ????????

I really couldn't go any more expensive on this build..
I had to settle for the i5-4670k.
I went with an EVGA GeForce GTX780 SuperClocked w/EVGA ACX Cooler 3GB GDDR5 384bit.

What do you mean, "settle"? The 4670k is so powerful that it won't bottleneck even the most powerful graphics card for at least 2-3 years. CPUs are so far ahead of GPUs it isn't even funny. The only reason to buy a faster CPU than the 4670K is if you do a lot of video rendering, music production, CAD, and the likes, or just want to waste a bunch of money for bragging rights.

I see in your Sig that you have the 4670k!
Thank you for the input. Much appreciated.

No its solid, and odds are that game makers will begin taking advantage of multicore processing more and more as time goes on thus the full potential of that processor in relation to gaming is nowhere close to being utilized right now(meaning it should still hold up 3-5 years from now, for example the i7 950 released in 2009 while not the best you could get is still a decent processor option 5 years later for gaming).

Nah man, don't listen to these people. The 4670k is horrible and it'll bottleneck everything like it's Coca Cola.

I'm lying. /sig

Bottleneck depends on the game honestly. In some games you might hit a CPU wall before you hit a GPU wall.

I know an I5 2500k is a bottleneck in Skyrim, and not the GPU. *IF* certain settings are maxed out like shadows. Because the CPU renders shadows in Skyrim. I actually took shadows beyond the normal setting limits and easily hit a CPU bottleneck, and had to scale them back some.

But you normally shouldn't ever hit a CPU bottleneck in any game if its properly coded. The GPU is supposed to do most of the work. But if its a crappy console port like Skyrim we're talking about then you might hit a CPU bottleneck instead of a GPU one.
