Will my CPU bottleneck my GPU at all?

Hello all. So I am going to be building my first computer soon, and I have chosen all the parts. I intend to use the computer for gaming, and with that said I would like to know if the Intel core i5-3570K 3.4GHz will bottleneck my EVGA 02G-P4-2670-KR GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 Video Card. If so can you recommend a better CPU with a LGA 1155 socket.

  1. You didn't link the 3570K. Did you mean to link the 2380P? Anyway, it'll be just fine. A 3570K would be better than the one you linked, but that one is fine as well for a 670.
  2. No need you got a top tier gaming CPU.

    Not really disagreeing with you rolli, but you don't think a 2380P can handle a 670? If not, why not? Just curious.

    He clearly states I5 3570K so I did not look at the links! Was posting as you were posting but 2380P will handle 670 fine its up there with all the other I5's. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-overclock,3106-5.html
