should not be bottlenecking but you may want to upgrade to 8gb ram instead of 6gb as in the future games will start to take up more than 4gb as the next gen consoles have 8gb

I would think a single GTX 770 would handle just about any game @ ultra on 1080p A 770 is overkill for 1080p.
I've seen 660tis and 7950s completely max out many many games at 1080p
