Will it bottleneck?

Hey, so recently i have decided my graphic card just is not up to snuff (currently using a gtx 570), so I have decided to go for a superclocked gtx 680 (see link http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007Q87KZ2/ref=ox_sc...).

Before I buy this though I just want some advice on whether I will be getting the most out of this card with my current build.

I have a Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 Motherboard (supports pcie3 and am3+ cpus)
A Intel Core i7-2700K 3.5 GHz Quad Core Processor
and most importantly a Corsair TX750V2 Enthusiast Series 750W ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze PSU.

Psu - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004O0P9VC/ref=oh_de...

My two important questions are will the power supply be able to take this card? And will it bottleneck with my cpu, I do not want to be spending £370 on a card that i wont get the most out of, any insight on this please help!

Your power supply is more than enough to power 2 680s, so no problem. Your cpu is powerful enough to handle any current card right now (and I guarantee, it'll also be powerful enough for next gen cards), nothing to worry about.

NOTE: Your motherboard does not support AM3+ (or any AMD) CPUs.

Hey guys thanks for the reassurance guys, Ezio in particular, cheers for clearing that up man! and yeh I dont know why I said it was am3+ sorry about that. Does that matter though? its got me confused as to what it even is now!

I just gave it a quick google there and I found it hard to find some detail on it. I think it is just for AMD cpu's or something though right? And yeh jed I had to end up getting a different cooler, the stock cooler was very bad.
