It doesn't bottlenect my ASUS gtx 580 directcu ii @930/1860/2200 cause when I run battlefield 3/crysis 2, I see 99% gpu usage on msi afterburner. But I am upgrading my gpu to ASUS gtx 670 directcu ii top within a week and wondering if there will be any bottlenecks?

I am running my i5 760 at 3.6ghz with 1.325v core 200x18multiplier

There's no point of upgrading to a 670 if you already have the 580.

well I am selling the gtx 580 on ebay for about $300, so I am pretty much spending $100 for a card that performs about 25-40% better. Also the gtx 670 is smaller and cooler so I will have room for sli later on.

But my only question is, will there be any bottlenecks from the cpu?

there would be no sign of any bottleneck, i5 760 with 3.6Ghz is still too much even for SLI/CF.
Core 2 quad q9650 will not bottleneck 670, so i5 is way too much better.
