What do you think is the highest GPU I could run stock and with the overclock before I reach the bottleneck?
it depends on the game, number of monitors, resolution (1080p 1440p, etc).
there is no correct answer.
I have 8320 CPU and GTX 760 * 2 SLI, and in some games the GPUs are maxed @ 1080p ultra settings, others the GPU only get used 50%. I been looking at these x-star and qnix 1440 monitors and if I get one of those my GPUs will get pushed a lot harder.
955be is a nice CPU, so you should just decide what your budget is.
I think that CPU would match up fine with new 290x or 780 TI if you are willing to spend the money.
