Hey guys, I have a pretty powerful gaming rig, but at the same time I'm worried My CPU will most likely bottleneck my GPU. Here's just a few specs to give you an Idea

Here's the problem: Since I'm pretty sure that my CPU will bottleneck my card, a 7990 is the most powerful card out there and therefore It's quite hard to decide a good CPU with it. If I need an overclocking How do I do so? If so if I DO need to overclock what GHz should I clock mine to? PS games I'm hoping to play are BF4,Titanfall,and GTAV. So Thx in advance guys.
How many monitors?
I'm assuming you want to play in max detail?
If you are using a single, standard 1080p monitor with 60-144 Hz refresh rate and want to play in max detail, then with that hardware you probably won't need to overclock anything for a long time. Your CPU is not going to bottleneck your GPU.
Why did you even answer then? I was looking for a solution if I need to overclock anything, and yes the 7990 is the fastest GPU on the market, go look it up. Why do I have 2 Hdds? What does that have to do with anything? Plus I did build this thing myself, I cusom built it online
