Will this CPU and GPU bottleneck?

For my birthday because i'm turning 13 it's sorta special to me and my parents have agreed to get me an I7 4790K and it will be an upgrade from my A8-5600K. Will the I7 4790K bottleneck with my Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 OC 2GB edition?

  1. The i7-4790K is a waste of money if you're only going to be gaming with it.

    Also if you're planning to change your processor to Intel, you'll have to change your motherboard as well.

    That CPU will get every bit of performance out of your 7850.

    That being said, your 7850 is a rather weak for that CPU. The good thing is, whenever you do upgrade your GPU, your CPU will be ready for it.
