1080ti bottlenecking on OC'ed 4570k


I suspect that it won't be an issue, I've got a 4570k overclocked to 4.8 and I need a new GPU for 4k gaming.


AORUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB XTREME Edition

Now if I were running 1080p then sure, it wouldn't make any difference, but at 4k I should be able to utilise the full usage of the GPU right?

Yes, but really entirely dependent on the motherboard and the lanes available to the card. Assuming you were running something "not quite as good"  as the Titan previously you'll already have PSU sorted.  Does sound like you already have this covered.

Kind of a First World Problem for gaming :)  
"I've just bought this top of the line graphics card and will be playing 4K at a great FPS rate ... does anyone see a problem with this?"

Enjoy :)

Oh I've got a platinum 850w PSU. I had 2 R9-290's previously and those are a tornado of fire and brimstone with the draw to match!

No, it's not that, I've not bought it yet, I was wondering if it would be better to get 1070 instead, to be honest If I could get away with the 1070 because of a CPU bottleneck then yeah, I'd have gone for 1 of those instead. This is my first upgrade in what, 3 or 4 years.

Also, no need to be like that really is there. I actually thought my 5 year old CPU would have caused an issue.
