i7-2600k Should be faster. Since it is used just make sure that the i7-2600k works well.

one question which stuff are you going to do much, GAMING or PHOTOSHOP?
basically both are chip are same in features but 3570k even has features over the 2600k?

For gaming if the prices are the same I would go with the 3570k, but since the 2600k is $30 cheaper, I will go (personally) with the 2600k. Like I said before make sure the 2600k is in a good condition. For photoshop and other non-gaming programs 2600k should be an easy choice.

i7 and i5 are basically same chip's but i7 has only hyper-threading which is useless in games.
