I don't think it will be an issue, you might have to overclock it a bit.

The bottleneck will depend on your motherboard since you have a great CPU.
What is your motherboard ?

Well, it certainly depends on the game if you ask me. but in other words, no you wont see any major bottleneck.

No that CPU will not bottle neck a newer card; specially at 3.4 ghz, If you're worried about the bottle neck you should look at Overclocking the CPU. Which may mean you need a new motherboard and heatsink.
