Will the RX 590 be bottlenecked by i5-7400 ?

Hey guys, I am thinking about upgrading my GPU from GTX 960 to a new RX590. But I am afraid that my I5-7400 will be bottlenecking it.

 

Also will my 500W PSU 80+ from Evga be enough ?

specs: i5-7400

           RX 590

           16GB of ram (2x8gb stick)

           2x HDD

Well the gtx 1080 is a much more powerful card too. the rx590 is bit below the gtx 1070.

I only see your reply if you @ me.

My 1070 ( slightly better than the 590 ) keeps up with my 6500 ( About same as 7400 ) so I'd say you're fine.

And yet here with my 1080Ti and i7-4770. I fail to see the bottlenecks troubles. If you get a very powerull GPU and game on 1080p, you'll notice bottleneck but at 1440p and up, bottlenecks are gone. And it also depends on which games you want to play. So without knowing the games you play, we can't be for sure. But as the other member said, it will be fine for most of the games.
