My current build has an i5-6500 chip. I'm looking to upgrade my GPU soon to a 1070 or better from my current 960. Wanted to know if I would benefit also from an upgraded CPU...say an i7-7700. I'm not an overclocker thus the reason for the locked chips. I'm aware that I'd need to upgrade my motherboard if I decided to upgrade my CPU also.
Also, if I only upgraded my GPU and went all in and got the GTX 1080 ti would it bottleneck my CPU(i5-6500)?
