Bottlenecks are between the GPU and the CPU, so you should be OK with any GPU with an i5.

so that mean that the mobo cannot bottleneck the cpu or decrease its performance ?!

A H61 motherboard cannot overclock the CPU, so it would prevent you from getting the most out of a "K" series i5. It may also either lack SATA 6Gb/s and/or USB3.0 ports, OR they may be provided by 3rd party controllers that are poor performers compared to the native Intel ports on a better mobo like a H77 board.

Hozhoz, is right. If you are gonna do any OCing, get a Z77 or Z87 board.
