Will there be a bottleneck in my system?

Motherboard: Gigabyte 780T-D3L
RAM: Kingmax DDR3 8 GB 1333Mhz RAM
CPU: AMD FX-4100 ~3.6 GHz
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC Edition

I'm running 1080p.

It's probaby the CPU, right?

Sorry to tell you this but yes, there is no way that cpu will keep up with the 760.

How big this bottleneck will be?

Quite big. the 4100 is a really weak quad core cpu. Core for core it cannot keep up with intel's offerings. I would suggest upgrading the cpu/mobo to an intel core i5 build (you can keep the ram, and the psu. You could get an asrock mobo and an i5 4570 for a relatively small amount of money. I would put the money towards that before buying a good gpu.

the 8350 isn't bad, but the 4570 is better for gaming. Most games don't utilise 8 cores, and since the cores are stronger on the i5, it will perform better.

Really right now you should go for an entry level AMD Piledriver CPU.. maybe if you wanna play around with OC (please.. read guides, do your homework) buy a Hyper-212 on the side.

If you get a FX-6300 you should be able to push it up to 4 Ghz and there is some, although little, evidence proving that 6 cores is supported in future gen games (fx BF4).

You will get more bang for your buck this way..
