The real question is what games are you playing? Any CPU/GPU can be bottlenecked by any CPU/GPU in a particular game.

To find out for sure, you can install msi afterburner and use the in game system monitor to see your gpu and cpu usage. To set up the in game monitor, you can follow this guide:
https://gaming.msi.com/article/setting-up-osd-with-msi-afterburner
If your gpu is at a constant 100% your gpu is fine, but if its at 50-70% for example, you have a problem, and either your drivers are bad, game is not optimized well, or you have some sort of bottleneck somewhere.

CSGO will not use all of your GPU, i have the same thing, except my performance is more than high enough so i'm not bothered.
