Hi. Will an i5-2400 bottleneck a rx 580 4gb? Full specs are: i5 2400, gtx 1050 2gb, 2x4gb ram, intel dq670w, 1tb hdd, 250 gb ssd, segotep atx-500wh. I want to upgrade my cpu, psu and gpu. For the gpu I'm thinking of a rx 580 4gb since its the best performance-price ration in my country and for the psu a Seasonic S12III-550, 80+ Bronze, 550W. For the cpu, i will upgrade later with an i7-2600. So until I get the i7, will the i5 bottleneck my rx 580? Also, will the i7 bottleneck the gpu?

Those answers depend on the game, the resolution, the quality adjustments, etc. There is no definite YES or NO answer.

My performance with the i5 would be similar, right? So the i7 will perform better
For somethings, maybe. An i7 is just an I5 with hyperthreading enabled. It would depend on clock speed more than anything. You still only have 4 physical cores in an I7.
I wouldn't spend any money on CPU upgrades without doing the entire motherboard/CPU/RAM upgrade. An i3-10xxx will be much faster than a 10 year old I7 CPU.
