GPU Bottleneck Inquiry

I just recently got a GTX 1080 for my computer that has an Intel core i5-6402 (which only goes up to 3.2GHz). I'm wondering if the GTX 1080 is being bottlenecked by this processor and if so, how much more fps could I get if I get a better processor?

What resolution? In general you will want a 4790k or above.

Forgive me El Guapo. I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education...

It will in CPU bound games, before buying the 4790, i had the i5 4670 and it bottlenecked my 1070 in games like COD,BF, even in CSGO (not much bottleneck but more smoothness), that to 1080 p, above that the cpu will be ok

The CPU is not powerful enough to drive a 1080 properly.. imo
