I think you will be fine. There is always some degree of bottleneck between components. The question is does it matter, is it noticeable. I think in your case it won't be a problem that will effect game play. Your resolution will be the same I'm guessing. So you will gain some FPS advantage up to what your CPU can provide. That means your game play should be better and definitely no worse.

At some point you'll need to upgrade your CPU. It's a close call, but I think you're probably right to go GPU. You're definitely not wrong. Your 8gb of RAM might be an upgrade consideration before CPU in my opinion.

[4th gen i7 and 1070 - no problems at 3440x1440]
