  2. No your i7 will not bottleneck the gtx 660.
  3. Your CPU will not bottleneck your GPU. Just hook the GPU on the right 2.0/30.0 x16 or x8 slot on the motherboard.

    By "Hook the GPU on right 2.0 slot" means adding the card on PCIe slot of motherborad. I hope my understanding is right.

    Thanks to everyone for a quick response.
