Default Bulldozer bottleneck?

Hey guys, wanted to ask a question regarding if my builds got some bottle necking going on. I know the basic principle of bottlenecking, and what it does, but I don't know how to tell if it's happening. My build is:-

AMD FX-8150 (OC'd to 4 GHz via Corsair H80)
8 GB Corsair Vengeance Ram
Asus GTX 660Ti OC Edition
(All the other information is kinda irrelevant for this question.. basically got 2 SSD's and a storage drive.)

My question is, is my 660Ti being held back by the CPU? I know it's different for every game, but say for battlefield 3? If it does bottleneck, how do you remedy the situation, boost the clock even higher?
