Is the RTX 2070 too much GPU for the Ryzen 5 1600X (no OC)? At 1080p? At 1440p? I like my graphics at their max.
PC-Builds.com's Bottleneck Calculator seems to think so; by about 10%. Do I trust it?

Bottleneck calculators are totally useless in my opinion.

It depends on the game in some very cpu heavy games at 1080p it may hold back a 2070 a bit, though im sure anything currently out will still run very well regardless of if there is a slight cpu bottleneck. At 1440p I doubt there will be any cpu bottleneck at all in current games.

Some games yes. Other games no. Do you already have the CPU? You can always upgrade it later with Ryzen 3.
Yes, got the CPU but not the 2070. I have a GTX 1070 now, but want to gift it to somebody. So I was wondering about replacing it with a RTX 2070 if I wasn't being too crazy.

I hope the person you are gifting your GTX 1070 will put it to good use. Otherwise, that would be an expensive upgrade for a relatively small jump in performance. RTX 2070 is on par with a GTX 1080. I would only do that if they main reason for the upgrade was to gift the GTX 1070.
 
No GPU is ever really 'too much'...

But....

It's more a matter of how much of the very good GPU's hypothetical performance at 1080P/1440P are you sacrificing by getting less than the 9900K...

Here are a few 1080P/1440P comparisons...( many of which make AMD fans quite angry, BTW!)...

Many folks seemed certain the difference between AMD and INtel is but 5-10%, and, when confronted with CPU comparisons using top GPUs show the difference can be 30+%, folks then complain ad nauseam that 'the settings were not high enough to shift the load mostly to the GPU', etc...

The R5-1600 gives 'good performance, but, it would be hard to deny that in some games at even 1440P, it might be down some 30%...; will this matter if getting 100 fps on a 60 Hz monitor? No. WIll it matter when trying to achieve 144 FPS minimums for a 144 Hz monitor? It sure might.

Pairing a 9900K with a GTX1050 seems odd, as would pairing an R3-1200 with an RTX2080Ti....; most rigs are well in between of either, with lesser degrees of 'oddness', and, all opinions are only that.
