will these bottleneck

Hi I'm building my first PC and wanted a gtx 780 ti, but keep everything else under $1500. So for a CPU I decided to go with an Intel Core i5-4440 clocked at 3.1 GHz will this bottleneck the gtx 780 ti

  1. It all depends on the game. CPU-heavy titles will keep your GPU from working at 100% all the time.

    With an overpriced beast of a GPU like that, why skimp on the CPU? Go for an i7-4770K. Or at the very least, an i5-4670K.
  2. Best answer
    If I were you I'd go for at least an i5 4570. You'll probably notice some difference in cpu intensive games between the 4440 and 4570, but not so much between a 4570 and 4670k.

    If you want to save money (I'm assuming you do since you chose an i5 4440), then I'd go for a cheaper cooler to offset the extra cost of a 4570. At stock clocks even a cheap cpu cooler for $20-30 will be a massive improvement over stock.
  3. Yeah I play games like planetside 2 which is CPU intensive so I should get another CPU instead
