I highly doubt your CPU is going to hold you back at all. I mean I have a 2600K still and I'm still considering the 780ti, will my cpu bottleneck it a bit, I'm guessing yes but I doubt it will be a ton. With a 3770K@4.8GHz you will be fine.

CPUs are more important if you are gaming at 1920x1080@120Hz. At 2560X1440@60Hz the CPU shouldn't as important.
