Question i5 4590 bottleneck for 1080ti mini?

You would be CPU limited in a lot of games. Probably just as well off with a GTX 1080 or RTX 2070 paired with your i5-4590. Get a 1440p or 4K monitor and you would be better off with the 1080 Ti.
Let me get this straight, I need to be playing 1440p or 4K to make it work smoothly?
What happens if I play in 1080p?

No, that's not what I'm saying. What I'm saying is if you play in 1080p your performance with the 1080 Ti will be similar to someone using a GTX 1080, or simply lower than other people using a GTX 108 Ti who have a better CPU, because your CPU will be limiting your GPU performance and the GPU won't perform at its maximum capability. When you play at 1440p or 4K, more of a strain is placed on the GPU making you utilize your GPU more.

Why are you fixed on getting a GTX 1080 Ti? Are you getting a really good deal on it?
