Bottleneck issues HD 7790 with Pentium G2020

Hello everyone, I was wondering if i will experience bottleneck issueswith this setup :
Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 1 Go Dual-X OC
Intel Pentium G2020
G.Skill NS Series 8 Go (2 x 4 Go) DDR3 1333 MHz CL9
MSI B75A-G41
FSP (Fortron) RAIDER S550 550W 80PLUS Silver
BitFenix Merc Alpha

I intend to do some gaming( skyrim, LoL ) and work but i never work on videos, maybe the GPU is too big and cpu not enough?

Any comments about the setup will be most welcome!

No bottlenecks, but if you're playing skyrim, i'd get at least radeon 7850

Get a proper i3

the pentium is pretty limiting

Best solution

Or an Athlon II x4 750K alongwith an FM2 board. I would recommend at least a quad core for gaming as for now.

The i3 would also do since it works just like a quad core because of hyperthreading.
