I don't feel like changing the CPU together with a motherboard yet, it cost quite a bit
However I love the GTX 660 Ti, and I am afraid that my CPU might bottleneck it

the is currently running on stock, I am planning to get a cooler and overclock the CPU to 4.0 GHz, hoping that it won't bottleneck the 660Ti

Will the i5 760 overclocked to 4.0GHz bottleneck a 660Ti?

Also, any chance the 660Ti power edition from MSI will have a sale on amazon on blackfriday?

Thanks.

You will NOT bottleneck :)  You have no worries.

Also, there is no knowing of what things will go on sale on Black Friday, however, from past experience, I will say that newegg usually has a massive component sale on Black Friday :)  With that said, I would definitely stay up late on Thanksgiving to keep an eye out for deals ;) 

On a side note, I would recommend the Radeon HD7950 over the GTX660 Ti. The castrated memory bandwidth will cripple it in the future. I personally would not want to take this risk - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-660-ti-...
