Will putting a PCIe 3.0 GPU into a PCI3 2.0 slot produce a performance bottleneck if I have a 2500k processor?

I currently have an Intel i5 2500K processor on a motherboard with PCIe 3.0 slots. I am aware that the 2500K was not made for PCIe 3.0 but I was curious if I was to put a GTX 770 in my PC would I have a significant performance bottleneck?

  2. No bottleneck will be created. ~1-2 FPS increase from using a PCIE 2.0 slot to a PCIE 3.0 slot.

  3. Will I still only lose a slight amount of gpu performance since I have the sand bridge cpu?
