Default Would I bottleneck?

Hey guys I plan on doing a build soon and I'm worried if I'll have any bottlenecking problems, my specs are: corsair ax850w psu, xfx 7970 black edition, intel i5 2500k, ASIs p8z68-pro mobo, and 8gb of corsair vengeance ram. What do you guys think? Let me know please :)

You'll be fine. You could save some money with a different PSU, if you're inclined. A ~600W would be plenty for that system.
