Hello, I am LostElement, but you can just refer to me as LE. I will be adding a lot of imformative stuff for you guys so you can better make a decision on building your PC. It's not done (Yet!) but I intend on working on it and updating it!

What is Bottlenecking?
A bottleneck is a phenomenon where the performance or capacity of an entire system is limited by a single or limited number of components or resources. The term bottleneck is taken from the 'assets are water' metaphor. As water is poured out of a bottle, the rate of outflow is limited by the width of the conduit of exit - that is, bottleneck. By increasing the width of the bottleneck one can increase the rate at which the water flows out. Such limiting components of a system are sometimes referred to as bottleneck points. - Wikipedia
Everyone is affected by bottleneck one way or the other. The question is: How much is it affecting you? Well, it completely depends. What's your resolution, your graphical settings, what game you're playing, how much load is on the component(s), etc etc. It's not a yes or no thing.
