CPU for New Gaming Rig, Good Enough?

I had lots of success with my past AMD cpu's, but now its time to build another setup, and this time I think I'm doing the opposite.

I have a XFX 7950 Black Edition DD picked out @ 900mhz and am probably going to play with overclocking it to around 1100+

The cpu I chose was a i5-3750k and I plan on OCing that to atleast 4.0ghz+ since I had so much success OCing my AMD chips.

Is the i5 I've chosen enough for the GPU I've selected? Even if I ran everything at stock? I'm talking about bottlenecking.

Also, if I threw another 7950 for Xfire would it still be able to handle it?

Thanks for your input!
