Actually, bottlenecking depends on the software. What software are you planning to run?

PSU should be fine I think.

Well, if you are at single 1080p and content with our performance, there is no need of upgrading the GPU, invest in the Motherboard+CPU+RAM combo instead.

no it won't with that sick clock on the i5-750, your just fine.
and if specifically gaming then there is no need to upgrade, period.
there are threads here on Tom's the state and prove the i5-750/760 clocked to 3.4GHz or higher
as well as the older i7's (860-880) not including the LGA 1366; when gaming only is concerned...
no need to upgrade.

I just did upgrade my i5-760 @ 3.52GHz because I got like almost 80% of original price when I built unit.
sold the mobo, RAM and CPU.
so if you can sell (if you want to) and get enough money to upgrade platform then the choice is up to you.
otherwise I wouldn't.

what about the rest of the unit, have SSD.?


dont have ssd but friends recommended apparently its crazy fast for laoding up and saving and stuff

so youre sayin dont buy another gtx 570 ? i know its a killer card i get 60+ plus in any game excpet mafia 2 and metro but sli is always good im pretty sure within next year 2 570s will be barely enough cuz pci 3.0 is comin out and they have double the bandwidth and games are gona be more intense on gpu then ever
