    Question bottleneck

    I have a ryzen 9 3900x. And a X570 Pro motherboard 32GB 3200 speed ram. I want to get the RTX 4080. Will I bottleneck too hard if i put the 4080 in? I am planning on getting more upgrades but right now id prefer only upgrading one component at a time. 3440x1440 res if that matters.

    Question i7 9700 and Geforce RTX 4070
