No website can give you exact bottlenecking statistics, it just isn't how bottlenecking works in today's PCs.

 

No, your CPU is WAY overkill for a GTX 1050 Ti, you are more than fine with that combination.


Ryzen 7 1700X

Asus Maximus VI Hero X370

Corsair H100i V2 (w/ MagLevs)

2x8GB 3200MHZ Corsair Vengeance RGB

Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Edition

EVGA G3 550W PSU

Samsung 960 EVO 256GB + 1TB Seagate SSHD

Phanteks Evolv ATX Dual Tempered Glass

16GB of RAM would be better and for 1080p you could easily go as high as a 1070 or 1070ti for this computer depending on what games you play and how much GPU horsepower you think you need now and in the future.
