Okay so I am planning on buying a gaming PC in July. I am getting a i7-4790 k 4 core 4.0 ghz (OC can go up to 4.8 ghz)
8 GB of RAM and two sli GTX 780 TI EVGA superclocked GPUS. I want to know if my CPU will bottleneck these two GPUS and I also want to know if it will cause overheating. My cooling is corsair hydro series h60 push pull air flow. I also heard that it will bottlneck if I don't have a monitor that can go past 1980x 1080 resolution

More about : cpu bottleneck gpu

No it wont. Neither the cpu nor the gpu will bottleneck each other.

If you are only using a 1080p monitor 2x 780 ti is overkill.

Well i'm preparing for the Witcher 3 and word is that one gtx 780 Ti can't run it max settings so I was thinking of doing sli or getting a Titan Black but the Black isn't worth it.

that cpu...will not bottleneck anything that a sane human can ever buy as a gpu...but do you really need an i7?....if you're doing photoshopping, or other 3D rendering tasks then that's fine..otherwise stick with an i5...even that thing can handle maybe 2-3 780ti's...as for the monitor....if you're playing on 1080p and still want 2 780ti's...then well what can i say?...I guess Nvidia just got lucky with their video cards

Lets not jump the gun on Witcher 3 specs. I am sure a single GTX 780Ti would be powerful enough to run it @ 1080 p on uber settings (hopefully).

P.S: I have mine pre-ordered from GOG.com :D . Cant wait for it.
