Will I get a bottleneck out of those two? I'm getting an upgrade soon and people are saying the i5 2500k might bottleneck the GTX 660. I'm only running at 1440x900

No it won't bottleneck the GTX 660. I5 2500k is a pretty good chip.

In a sense it will not bottleneck it, more the resolution that is going to bottleneck the GPU.

Yeah I figured. People keep telling me to get a 670. At this resolution the 660 is almost too much, as you're saying.

Yes a 650 or 650Ti would handle that resolution fine. But if you plan on upgrading display to 1080p then 660-670 would be great to have. The CPU can handle the strongest GPU's on the market.
