I haven't seen any articles examining modern i3 bottlenecking but I'd be inclined to say that if there is any, it won't be anything too severe. Hopefully somebody can post some articles/benchmarks.

It will bottleneck in CPU intensive games but theoretically, an I3 would not give so much bottleneck that the games wouldn't be playable.

see this:

an I3 competes for quad cores of AMD in its price range quite well.
as for the new I3-4330, it will be clocked 3.5ghz so the bottleneck will be less.

the GPU used in the video is a 7950 which is a little behind the 760.
