You’re not bottlenecking in the CPU, that only works that way in the other direction. You want the GPU to be under load at all times, it having to wait on a slow CPU results in a poor gaming experience. In your case, that won’t happen so you’re fine.

so does that mean it is a good build?

As @rickeo said, that isn't exactly how it works. Your GPU will be a bottleneck to the full potential of the system. Once you get a faster GPU, it will be am ore balanced setup where you will actually get the most out of your CPU.
