you actually gave everything but the specs of the monitor, but i can guess its a 144hz 1080 display.

your gpu isn't "bottlenecking" you pc, its that your cpu can handle a better gpu without bottlenecking it.

Don't worry about the term "bottleneck" - it is abused to the point of meaningless.

What exactly is the shortcoming? In what games? All games, or only some? Does it make a difference if you lower the detail settings, or not? etc?

in games some games ill be getting 144 or more and some games ill just get 90-115 theres not much in between. im also very new to PC gaming, just coming off consol so might be worrying about nothing

That's pretty good, actually, so I don't think you have much to worry about. If anything, you could probably set Chill on the Radeon drivers to max out at, say, 80 or 90, maybe even 75, and you'll have very smooth gameplay, and your GPU will run a little cooler since it isn't having to max out all the time.
