Long story short i'm building a ivy rig but i cant decide between these 2 CPU's: -i5 3570k (Overclockable) -i7 3770 (Non-Overclockable) The i5 is only $50 cheaper than the i7 so I would buy a half decent cooler and OC the i5 So what one is better an overclocked i5 or the i7?

Unless your just using this for video editing or photoshop the overlcoked i5 will benchmark way higher then the stock i7 in games.
if you're getting a Z77 board, get the K cpu. if you're going with a H77 get the i7 instead.
