    To my understanding, a single GTX 760 isn't really anything so special that it's going to require a more powerful cpu to run it. However if you add a second 760 and cross over into SLI territory there might be some issues.

    An FX 6300 at stock speeds should be sufficient for a single 760.
  7. No bottleneck in your specs.
