I was thinking of updating my videocard for a RX 590, but my CPU is kind of old, as my whole setup.

I'm planning on putting together a whole new rig the next summer, but I thought I would buy the VGA a bit sooner. I would catch up with some games from the last 2-3 years.

Is bottlenecking something that i should be worried about?

Current specs:
-CPU: INTEL Core i5-4670 3.40GHz
-RAM: CORSAIR 8GB DDR3 1600MHz
-VGA: SAPPHIRE R9 270X 2GB
-Motherboard: ASROCK H97 Pro4
1080/60 Hz IPS Monitor.

it probably won't, doesn't hurt to find out early in any event

At 60Hz it won't bottleneck at all.

Edit: What's your PSU?
8Gb of RAM will bottlneck in some new games requiring 16Gb. You can find cheap DDR3 on ebay or you can pass those games.

Yes, I'm aware that 8 GB RAM might not be enough, probably will buy some more soon after the VGA purchase.
My PSU is a FSP Raider 550W.
