Hi will the I7 4770k haswell at 4.8ghz bottleneck zotac gtx 480 with 2x ssd 840 pro?

No. The 4770k is stronger than the 3770k which could handle 3 graphics cards.

There is no difference between the i5 and i7 for gaming, you might consider getting the 4570k.

It wouldn't even come close to bottlenecking a GTX 480 at stock frequency.

Why are you getting a 4770k? What is your current CPU? I would upgrade your GPU before getting a 4770k. And like the others said, if you're going to be gaming get a 4570k. The only difference between the two for gaming is that loading matches on games that support 8 threads such as BF3 will be maybe a second quicker than a 4570k. Not worth 100$. Save that for a GTX 670 or something.

Marshal thankyou for the response,
I currently have the i7 920 at 4.2ghz and has been going strong for me for 4 years, so now its time to get an upgrade i want the 4770k because i need it for fligt simulator x which is more cpu dependant, and i use it also for video editing, and also have decided to get the gtx titan in a few months or 690.

:lol:  alright if you plan on getting a kick ass GPU as well, then yeah go for a 4770k. For your GPU, it depends though. Do you plan on SLI? If so, I'd suggest getting SLI titans over quad SLI 690s (2x 690) because the scaling after dual SLI configurations isn't so good because of poor optimizations of games. Because of poor optimization of 2x 690, which is just 4x 680s downclocked, 2x titans will perform better in some cases. On top of that, you can also get 4x titans to kick everything's ass by far.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the 700 series should be coming out soon. That can change everything I just said about GPUs.

yeah i am just sticking with just the one card

and this build should be good for at least 5 years. thanks for the help

No it won't bottleneck anything.

Get the i7 4770k if you want the best or save some money with an i5 4670k.

He's planning on dropping 1k on a GPU in a couple of months. I don't think he's on a budget. :lol:
