You just upgrade the PC with HD7850 and OC the CPU.

I agree with this one. Maybe go for something like 7870 if at all possible.

Also, get a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. They are only about 20 bucks. Then you can do some overclocking.

If you have the budget to get the 3570k and the 7870 or 7850, then go for it. However, getting a new GPU is much better than getting a new CPU in terms of gaming performance. If you can only afford 1 upgrade, then you should take the new GPU.
