Hello, i am looking to upgrade my graphics card to play newer games like watchdogs and battlefield 4 with high fps (around 50-70) on ultra settings. I am using a 1080p display and although i use two monitors, i do not intend to add a third for multiple monitor gaming.
I would like to know -
1. Will a gtx 780 bottleneck with my cpu?
2. If it does not bottleneck, would my upgraded setup would be able to achieve the results i am looking for?
3. Would i be able to run the 780 off of a 750 watt power supply?

My computer's specs are here -
Ram - 16gb
Cpu - Core i5-4670K @ 3.40 GHz (haswell)
Gpu - Gtx 650 ti boost ~ 2gb of vram
Psu - 750 watt corsair
Os - Windows 7 64 bit

Thank you for any help you can give, have a nice day! :)

I don't see why it should bottleneck, the i5-4570K is pretty good.

The 780 should be able to play most games at good FPS

A 750 watt PSU will be fine. Use the Corsair, they make good quality PSU's.

Happy Easter!

battlefield yes, watchdogs no.

your cpu is pretty much top of the line for gaming. you could run 3 of those video cards :p 

your psu is more than enough. you are good on everything. pull the trigger.
