So right now I've got a huge bottleneck with an Intel due e7400 2.8ghz and a Sapphire HD7950 GPU not to mention the fact my motherboard is out of date aswell, MS-7336. If I get this CPU http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/intel-core-i5-3450-proces... will I get any bottleneck at all? If so then what's a higher end cpu which would work better? If no then what would be the cheapest possible processor which could give no bottlenecks?

Cheers.

No no no no, go with the i5, it can't overclock but trust me - benchmark wise, the Core i5 does laps around the 8320. Cores don't matter - it's all about architecture performance.
