Would this specs bottleneck a GTX 770? I'm not really sure what else should I enter on my specs( total noob lol) but here's what I think I should enter. Please tell me if you need more of my specs. And suggestions as well of what components I should upgrade to go with 770 if there will be a bottleneck with my current specs.

Intel i5-3450 3.10GHz

Crucial Ballistix 8GB 2X4GB PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 1.5V CL8 Dual Channel Memory Kit

Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 850W 80+ Silver ATX 12V V2.3 Power Supply

I think my question would be, "is there a bottleneck-free system in the world?" Your CPU will definitely bog down that GPU. That I can be sure of.

Its always a good idea to invest in 3570 or 4670 if you are going for i5 series.
Also, if you want to overclock take the one with unlocked multipliers.

P.S - You sure it would bottleneck? I don't think so as difference between 3570 and 3450 is not very large. Even a 2500K can take GTX Titan without any sort of bottlenecks and considering 3450 its equal (without OC) due to newer generation stuff, I don't think it would "bog down the GPU". Correct me if I am wrong with evidence, but I don't think I am.

Overall 3570K is recommended by me as Haswell might be too much.

For realz? A 3.1Ghz with a 770? I'd have to imagine that CPU is going to cause one...

yeah you good to go you one need to worry about a bottle neck until you get another 770 in sli them.

Its not always the clock speed determining bottleneck.
Its a quad core with much higher per core performance than all of the AMDs out there surpassing those of Phenoms and FX ones too.

No chance of bottlenecks. As of now I was uncertain and slightly confused but now I know well that you are wrong.
CPU has a lot of processing power surpassing that of GPU when it comes to calculations and a 3450 is more than enough for that.

Thank you for all this info but wait, so if its more than enough, a superclocked 770 would still be good?

More than enough.

Superclocked = Factory Overclocked.
In there, they basically do the stuff which we do the very next hour of getting our new card.

Not a chance, it would still work very well without any bottlenecks even if you buy MSI GTX 770 Lightning.
