Cooler required for i7 3770k build

I have chosen the Corsair H100i at the moment, but I'd like to get a cheaper one to save for an HD 7870 rather than the HD 7850.. Could you suggest any cooler that'd do the job and save money? If I do go for the Corsair H100i and the HD 7850, will my i7 3770K bottleneck it? Looking forward to your inputs..

    absolutely not. the 3770k will bottleneck dual GTX 690s, definitely not a 7850
  5. No it will not bottleneck not even a 690 would bottleneck no card will.

    So, will it keep the i7 3770k cool? That too, even if I want to OC it? With that much saving, I can easily get the HD 7870!

    Yes and you can overclock mildly not hardcore though.
