Like the title states will I be receiving "bottle-necking" with my new build. Yes I will be doing my own benchmarking but I'm waiting on a rma MOBO and a RMA HDD but here goes:

No. Performance wise that will be fine. The only thing I would say is that, whilst it's a very good mobo, the Sabretooth is overpriced, and actually has little real benefit, for most people, over say the P8Z77-V. The money you could save with that, would be close to getting you a GTX670.

at this point all i wanna do is use this new pc haha i had to rma the mobo and hdd. worst experiance... built whole system to just tare it all down and rma it so im happy with a replaced sabertooth, and actually i got the sabertooth on sale paid 219.99 :D

No bottlenecks at all. I mean, that processor can handle 2x680s in SLI, so...
