I think it would be a good match if you can't afford anything better

No it will not bottleneck. You've got an extremely good CPU.

You should be fine, although overclocking the GTX 480 substantially could make the CPU become a minor bottle-neck, in which case a slightly greater CPU overclock would solve that.
