Will my CPU bottleneck my GPU?

I am upgrading to a new GPU soon, it will be an EVGA GTX 670 FTW edition.
I currently have an intel i5 3570k processor, not overclocked at all. I am wondering if this card will bottleneck my processor, since I see a lot of CPU usage when running games at 1920x1080 at 30fps.

Even the GTX 680 is bottleneck. This CPU is very strong and won't bottleneck at all. You gotta wait for the next gen cards i guess to see your CPU bottleneck on your system, even the next one maybe.

A card would never bottleneck a CPU, it's almost always the other way around. You'll be fine, trust me, but why buy a k series chip if you are not planning to overclock? Just get like an i5 3450/3470 instead, the performance will be relatively the same at stock speeds.
