Your friend gave you good advice.
The Seasonic X560 is a top quality psu with more than enough power for your card.
It would handle even a GTX680.

And... with a 3570K, you should not hesitate to try a simple overclock by raising the multiplier from 34 to 40 or 43.
It will add negligible increase in power demand.
