Will the 2070 RTX bottleneck with an 6600k?

Bottlenecking.com states my cpu is too weak for the 2080, though it doesn't have the option to calculate with a 2070... should I be concerned?

I personally wouldn't worry about it your CPU is roughly equivalent to i3 8300, which is not bad as far as gaming goes, that being said not sure a 2070 RTX is worth the cost at this point it probably a better buy to with a 1070 TI and save your money.

Well I currently have a 1060.

My motherboard is a GIGABYTE Z170X-GAMING 3 and can support up to an i7 7700k, which I can get a good price on $150 off sale... Would I get quite a longer lifespan if I upgraded my 6600k to a 7700k?

The 1070 TI seems on average about $100 cheaper than a 2070... so hmm, HMMMMMM. options. I have a 1060 currently.

Edit: I can get ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Mini at about $200 cheaper than the base 2070


Edit 2: Ok, I made the call and bought this. https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500431

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Mini...

Was $449 Canadian vs $659 for the cheapest 2070.

Looks like the jump from a 1060 to 1070 is much larger than the jump from 1070 to 2070 other than in multi rendering. Plus I heard the ray tracing is pretty much useless on the 2070 and thanks fps. and looks like its much more happy with my 6600k making the 7700k a nice option to consider but not not as big a deal.
