    I also have the i7 2600 (not K)
    It is definitely no bottleneck.
    Heck, the i7 930 the OP asked about is no bottleneck.
    At this point with the graphics and processor you guys are talking about the only thing "bottlenecking" would be anything less than 4-6GB of RAM and a HDD

    Get at least 8GB RAM and an SSD (You'll be in great shape at that point) :)

    already have ssd and 16gb of ram, and a caviar black is on the way :)
  6. then you're good to go for now!
    the only bottleneck at this point is your network/connection. :)

    What MOBO you have?
  7. Minor bottlenecks might be experienced if running games like Crysis 3 on ultra or massive PvP gaming, like in The Elder Scrolls Online. Other than that, it looks fine.
