Hello there,

I was wandering if an i3 4130 3.4 Ghz will bottleneck a GTX 770 2GB, if it does, how bad can it be? Would it be better if I just go with the GTX 760?

I'm planning to use a Gigabyte GA H87M D3H MoBo and 2x4GB 1600mhz sticks of RAM (corsair vengeance).

No, it should be fine but it depends on the game. An i5 would definitely perform better in games that are cpu dependent

Going from an i3 to an i5 would result in anywhere from %5-10 more FPS in games that aren't CPU dependant. In games that are, you would notice steady increases all the way up to the hex core I7's.

Short answer , no it will not bottleneck enough to notice without an FPS monitoring utility on the screen .
