I have a i5-4440 @ 3.10 gHz boost @ 3.3 gHz CPU and a GTX 760. I'm thinking to upgrade to GTX 760 SLI. Will the CPU bottleneck them?

Yes, why would you want SLI? It only has advantages when you're using VERY graphic intensive games on multiple monitors. I recommend a single GTX 770 max. for single monitor gaming.

No, the CPU will not bottleneck the GPU's.

No the 770 struggles to keep above 60fps when maxxed in current games at 1080p. Ideally a 780 would be best bet but if you already own a 760 go ahead and slap on another and rock on.

No sli has advantages for normal gaming. 760 sli outperforms a titan.
Its a great way to go and i have the same gpus/cpu as you and i can play games like gta 4 and watch dogs at 1440p ultra settings at 60 fps
