I own a core i5 3550 which can't be overclocked due to h61 chip set. Would this cpu be decent with a gtx 760 sli system? I'm trying to make sure my system will be good enough for next 6 years and if i can save money and get one 760 for now then that would be awesome. If this i5 stock bottlenecks a 760 sli then would an overclock help? It's a non-k cpu that's not built for overclocking...

Okay.. What about 770? Here in the UK they JUST brought the price down in amazon. The 770 now costs as much as a 760 was about an hour ago and the 760 is as cheap as 270x. So would a 770 sli system work? I'm assuming i'll have to overclock...
 


Still good. I can't think of a SLI combo that the i5 would bottleneck. It's a top tier gaming processor: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-overclock,3106-5.html
 


The 770 would be great but it would be bottlenecked if you had two of them in SLI.
