Will a GTX680 bottleneck an i7-3770K

This may sound like an absurd question to some of you, and I may even get hated upon for even asking such a thing.
But will the nVIDIA GTX680 bottleneck a stock-clocked i7-3770K?

  1. Do you mean will a 3770k bottleneck a 680?

    If so, the answer is no - not unless you're playing at some tiny resolution like 720p. If you're playing at 1080p, it will not bottleneck at all.
  2. Easy way to find out is test games for a FPS rate in a game and then overclock the processor. Another way you could find out is look for reviews that do just what I said in the last sentence.

  4. I don't think anything can bottleneck that right now.
