Not really, as long you're playing at 60hz & minimum 1080p you should be fine.

Would my i5 4440 bottleneck? Also, I'm planning to buy the 3GB version of this would it be ok? or the 6GB version is better for my CPU?

bottleneck, I would say yes but a little.
VRAM has nothing to do with CPU.
you'll regret buying the 3gb version, trust me
