Would my overclocked AMD FX 4130 bottleneck a GTX 770?

As I mentioned in previous questions, I builded up my pc with the mentioned CPU, which I happen to have overclocked to probably 4.2 or 4.3 Ghz, according to the Asus AI Suite. And I'm going to buy this new GTX 770 from MSI, 2GB Gddr5, and I am a bit worried that my CPU could bottleneck perfomance, knowing that this is a really powerful card and the cpu is not as powerful. Now, I dont think I would use this card at its fullest, since I don't usually play at 1920x1080, mostly I just prefer to play on a 1440x900 monitor, and I would normally cap the framerate according to Vertical Sync configuration. I know most people would not do this, but I would, since I don't really need that much framerate, 60 is fine. Now, about the games I am talking, its mostly TF2 (or just any Valve game), COD games (mostly blops 2 for zombie mode), BF4 and pretty much any trendy game that went up over these years. Now, I would really like to read to your opinion about this. Thanks in advance

  1. In most cases, yes. But the FX 4130 shouldn't stop you from getting 60 FPS in the most games.

    No it won't, Remember that FX 4130's stock CPU clock is 3.8 GHZ. In most heavy demanding graphics games like BF4 its your GPU that works most of the time, by the way you can overclock that GPU you have using MSI afterburner.
  3. no as long as it plugs in to your pc and you have the correct necessary power supply go for it over clock a tad bit if necessary i do for fun its worth it
    Windows7 64 bit
    amd fx zombiez
    6 gb ddr 3 ram
    gtx 660 Over clocked 1300mhz gpu 2 gb ddr 5 ram

    msi after burner beta 19
    amd over Drive 3.5ghz unlock 4.2 ghz o.c
