I am currently working on my first computer build, I was wondering if i would be bottle-necking my system with any of these parts? any suggestions? thanks.

Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-2500K Processor (4x 3.30GHz/6MB L3 Cache)

RAM: 4 GB [2 GB X2] DDR3-1600

Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 6970 - 2GB

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3

Hard drive: 2 TB HARD DRIVE -- 64M Cache, 7200rpm, 6.0Gb/s

Oh, this computer will be used primarily for gaming.

Sounds like it would be pretty fast to me.

Yeah, I agree with OhSnapWord. Those would be decent specifications, and I don't see a great deal of bottle-necking, not that it's particularly anything to cry over; bottle-necking isn't as scary and "OMG!" as people make out. I'm more of an nVidia person, but from what I've seen of AMD cards, that looks to be kick-ass, and a Quad-Core CPU is ideal for gaming. You can always OC the CPU and graphics card as well, to make up for any bottle-necking that might come about in the years to come.
