GeForce GTX 660 in dual SLI bottleneck with intel i5 3 1 ghz


I just ordered parts to build a my first gaming rig, i'm in no way...hell...I just don't freaking know crap about this stuff.

I bought 2 EVGA GTX 660s to run in SLI.
I bought an ivy bridge i5 3.1ghz

Friend of mine commented he's worried it will bottleneck (whatever that is, but sounds bad) due to the cpu.

Ideas, suggestions?

    It will work fine! Although a faster I5 (3570K) that you could overclock would have been better.
  2. Well, at least I know it will work. MIght just have to see if I can get another CPU down the road. Thanks!
  3. Enjoy!
