I'm currently planning on buying the GTX 1070 TI, with a Akitio Thunder 2 due to the fact that my Imac is only capable of TB2. I've been wondering if my i5 5250u cpu and TB2 will cut down the potential of the gpu, if so what should I do? And is it possible to get a Akitio Node with TB3 connected through a TB2 mac adapter and be able to make the card go? If the 1070 TI bottlenecks should I go with a 1060 6gb, a normal 1070 or a 1070 OC/SC?

What are you planning to do?

The i5 shouldn't really bottleneck much unless you are planning some highly cpu AND gpu intensive activity.

Missed the "U" at the end of the name. Yes, it will bottleneck it and likely a bit the GTX1060.
You could consider buying a gtx 1050 or something different, OR change your cpu aswell.
