Hey guys, do you guys think the CPU would be bottleneck in general and gaming performance in general? If so how to determine? And would you recommend overclocking in this case..

It won't be detrimental to your gaming in the sense of things being unplayable, it shouldn't result in a stutter which is the sign of a true "bottleneck".

yeah..It's not going to play gta4-5,ARMA,or Far Cry 3,or Max Payne very well
really quads with some L3 cache are what's best..
775 Yorkfields are OK...not the bestest though.
I would recommend overclocking as much as you can and still be stable :) 
4.4 maybe?
Short answer:Yes

I was running my e8400 @3ghz with SLi'd 560Ti's and was getting decent enough frame rates.

Yeah..e8400 still a strong dual core processor..even for today

in non optimized multi thread programs or games before 2012, it still show the muscle..and almost as fast i3 series..
