Im going to be playing BF4 on it as well as some other games and things for work.. My initial thoought is that this setup would not cause any bottleneck issues and should be great to get me through till the first of the year or so. Looking for any feedback and ideas. Thanks
18 gigs? What kind of RAM are you using?
Oh and your CPU and GPU will not bottle neck each other, just remember you cant overclock your CPU.
Overall though, as stated above: your system should be fine for 2 years, I have a 3570k + a 660ti, still running it to this date, dont plan on upgrading till Q2-Q3 next year.
