Default Will I be bottlenecked?

I currently have the Radeon HD 7750 and plan on upgrading to the new GTX 660 Ti. Will I be bottlenecked with my i5 2500K cpu?

Naaah, I highly doubt it. That CPU is more than sufficient to keep up with that graphics card, I'm sure. I have a quad-core AMD at 4.2GHz and would happily put a 6 series nVidia card in it, if I cared or needed to. G'luck.
