Will an I7 870 bottleneck a gtx 770

I was looking into getting a gtx 770 for Christmas, and was wondering if my processor would hold it back.

  1. I believe they would go well together. what gpu are you replacing?

    p.s. i think the cpu is even slightly overpowered compared to the gpu

    Nope. It will handle it fine. I used to have a i7-870 and later, a i7-875K. They were both just a tad shy of the power of my i5-2500K when it came to gaming. And the i5-2500K doesn't bottleneck, I know. My i7-870 ran my dual GTX 660 OC cards almost with the same benchmarks as my i5-2500K.
