GTX 660 TI and a i5 2500k? Sandy Bridge and 600 series?

I have a i5 2500k and I am liking the PNY GTX 660 Ti possibly for an upgrade. I was just wondering what are the let downs of using a Sandy Bridge CPU instead of an Ivy Bridge with a 600 series GPU? Specs are below.

Well an Ivy Bridge is obviously faster and uses less power than a Sandy Bridge but the i5 2500k is more than enough for gaming and will not bottleneck a 600ti if that's what you're concerned about
