I'm saving money for a graphics card and I don't know if I should get the GTX 1080. My CPU is i5 6600k. 

I'm afraid that there will be a bottleneck. 

Is it worth it? 

Yes it's worth it. You will enjoy it and see a small bottleneck in games like BF1 who can run many threads, but even with the bottleneck performance will be awesome don't worry that much about it like 95% of games won't bottleneck much

they are a fine pairing for any resolution 1080p and up. Don't worry about your CPU holding your GPU back with this combination.
