Hi everyone,

I'm upgrading my current GPU (a GTX 460) and I was looking at having two 760's running in SLI with the following configuration. However, I'm just not sure if it would cause a bottleneck. Any advice on the subject would be great.

CPU: Intel i5 2500k
Motherboard: Asus P8 Z68-V/GEN 3 (It has 2 PCI 3.0 x16 slots)
PSU: CoolerMaster 700w

No, it will not bottleneck, but I would overclock to 4.5GHz with a Hyper 212 EVO and you can see a decent speed increase..
