I'm doing a pc build I barely know anything about bottleneck and it's my first build
Also I need a good cooler for the 760k since it's stock cooler is terrible

I don't think it will bottleneck the GPU. At stock, there might be a slight bottleneck, but I can't imagine it being substantial.

No there will be no bottlenecks between the two. They will work great together. A Cooler Master 212 Evo would be a great cooler to use to overclock.

I doubt it. I have a Phenom 2 x6 at 4.2GHz with a radeon 7950 without any bottleneck problems and most games only use 2 or 3 cores so our CPU would perform similarly I'm sure.

Depends on the game. My 5GHz 760K bottlenecks my HD 7850 in some instances. You can't eliminate bottleneck. Something is always the weakest link.
Bottlenecks for Beginners
THW is always in need of bottleneck explanation, so here is my take on the subject matter. Your "bottleneck" will be dependent on the software you run and your display. For gaming: Your CPU handles the game engine and will be able to make a... See full content

Also my mobo is a Gigabyte

And has a 350 watt psu

Specifically what 350W PSU model?

i couldn't find out what psu it is because the case came with it (Apex TX-606-U3)

Read me the sticker on the PSU with the varoius current ratings. Need to know the 12v current rating to be sure it won't blow up.

Your Case (including PSU) is listed for only $35. That's not a good indication of quality PSU.
