    Well,the term bottleneck is used to indicate that one hardware is limiting the performance of another hardware(or multiple hardwares).Generally the term is used for gpu bottlenecks(as it is the most noticeable and effects gaming performance) when the gpu is being bottlenecked the cpu is essentially the limiting factor.

    In your case however it's the opposite, the cpu is being bottlenecked by the gpu or the gpu being the limiting factor for the 8700k.

    Essentially every system has a bottleneck,a system cannot be with zero bottleneck.There will always be something bottlenecking something else.But we try to match the hardwares in such a way that the bottleneck is minimal/lowest.

    As you didn't mention your gaming resolution and target fps , can't really comment how much or how little is your cpu being bottlenecked.

    TBH, you are just fine with this setup,if you don't plan to game at high fps and satisfied with your current graphical output and frames then there is no need to change your hardwares.If not then, upgrading the gpu next seems like the best option to me.

    In that case I believe the R9 290 is still capable of providing 1080p 60fps on modern tittles.However your cpu can provide ''more'' fps with a better/upgraded gpu if you are not satisfied.

    Well, I'm not.
    I also said "I believe".
    So are you saying a r9 290 cant provide ~60fps on a modern tittle with say medium settings?I don't have a 290 at my disposal right now so can't really check and I'm also not sure about it's performance on modern tittles.But thought it was/is strong enough to provide 60fps at lower settings(not at max settings obviously).

    your GPU is your biggest bottleneck even at 1080P.

    As others have said, the GPU is the limiting factor in this PC of yours.

    Just wondering, who was it that suggested you these components? Because I can't seem to justify purchasing such an expensive motherboard unless I am planning to break overclocking records using LN2. Instead of the fortune you spend on the motherboard, some could've been easily spent on a much more efficient and effective newer GPU architecture.

    The R9 390 can still be sold for a good amount of money, about 13,000/- BDT depending on the condition and model of the card. It's performance is in the ball park of a GTX 970~GTX 1060 or the RX 470~480 vastly depending on the game you're playing. Compromising on some settings like Tessellation factor, soft shadows, etc. can help you hit that magic 60 frames per second in more demanding game titles.

    Firstly ur mobo is overkill.

    Your gpu is significantly bottlenecking the 8700K.

    If the mobo has good resell value wherever u live, sell it plus the R9 390.

    Get a cheaper mobo and a beefier current gen gpu.

    Case closed.

    p.s. i wonder wat ocing ur doing to ur cpu if so, the perf disparity between cpu and gpu would only become wider.
