6600k & Gtx1080

Thinking of getting a Gtx1080 do you think it will bottleneck with my 6600k @4.6 Cheers

No..

All you need right now to prevent it is four cores and a high clock.

Yeah, definitely set for any game, some releases benefit marginally from more cores but definitely not worth the investment a new CPU would require.

Pricing is looking pretty good now compared to last year, I ordered a 1080 in November and that was £630 it was only through shear luck I ended up with a Ti which was an error on the suppliers side. Enjoy your card fella, she'll serve you well.
