intel i5-2500k can bottleneck a SLI GTX 470?
I was reading and they say that the 2500k is great for gaming,i was thiking of the 2600k but after reading(i only use the pc for gaming and some apps)i think i will buy the 2500k.
What do you say?

the 2500k is plenty fast for you and games won't take advantage of the i7's hyper threading anyway.

Agreed. The 2500k will in no way bottleneck the GTX470.
Just don't skimp too much on the memory or PSU.

because games don't really need the power that modern day CPUs offer. the GPU does most of the heavy lifting in gaming.
