Is my CPU bottlenecking my GPU?

Hey guys!
Was just wondering if my i5-4670k @ stock 3.4ghz would bottleneck my MSI GTX 770 TF @ 1189mhz under load?

I'm lazy atm so I can't really be bothered OCing, plus its really hot over here in Australia during the day (40 deg Celsius outside!)
Thanks for any help! :D

There's no bottlencking at all

Cheers, I should've mentioned, it's for gaming,
Atm, i'm playing SC: Blacklist at 60fps 1080p max settings, if that changes anything :p

Appreciate it, at what CPU speed would you say that It would start to be a bottleneck? (eg; 2.8ghz? 3ghz?) Just so I can know my margin of leway.

I have no idea. But why would you need to underclock the CPU?

I don't I just wanted to know how close I was pushing it to its max speed, so that I have a rough idea of when I'll need to OC.

press alt+tab check your cpu usage during cpu intensive or games that you play the most.That should give you some rough estimate on how much leeway you have before your cpu bottlenecks any of your other components
