Any single GPU will not bottleneck this CPU, even a GTX 1080 will not have any bottleneck with this CPU if you OC a bit

F*ck yeah but why on earth would you buy two 950s while you can spend on only one 970 and 20% better performance and that's only for the reference card as for the price it's slightly the same

H81 is a nice mobo and 2 r7 265 will work great with this cpu but i would recommend to get some better gpu instead of 2 r7 265's but choice is all yours.

that cpu and 750ti are a good combo for some solid gaming on many titles but if you have shadow of morodor or any other incredibly demanding titles crysis jokes aside you probably wont be running ultra on them but most other games will be

Man, All k processors have unlocked multiplier which means they are meant for overclocking whereas non k processors have locked multiplier which means they are not meant for overclocking. You should get i5 4670k if you wanna overclock your cpu or get i5 4670 if you don't wanna overclock your cpu.

not overly you will need a new motherboard its a good cpu but its only 25% better then what your using so I guess it depends on if you just use it for gaming.

If you can get the i7 3770K for around the same price as the i5 4670K, I'd take the i7 to be honest. The i7 3770K edges out the i5 4670K by a noticeable margin. The i7 3770K has more L3 Cache, uses less power and it's hyperthreaded.

Also, it can reach a much hotter temp before it throttles and it has a slightly higher base clock speed. So all in all, the 3770K doesn't really fall behind…..anywhere really.
