Asterisks are components I've already paid for. Just wondering what is going to bottleneck here, and have I made any horrible mistakes?

*Case: CoolerMaster HAF 922
*Mobo: ASRock Z68 Pro3 Gen3
*GPU: HIS Radeon HD 7850
PSU: Antec CGG 520
*SSD: Patriot Pyro SATA3 60GB
HDD: WD SATA3 1TB Black
*RAM: Patriot 2x4GB 1600
CPU: Intel i5 2500K

If your concern is about a gaming bottleneck, the 7850 will theoretically prevent better performance. But that won't mean a thing unless you're looking at a multi-monitor display etc. There don't appear to be any bottlenecks, looks like a nice system.

Is it worth upgrading the CPU to a IB 3750K?

No. You'll notice almost 0 difference in performance in most things, but in some things I think there will be a difference (I can't remember what. Rendering maybe?). The IGP won't mean much seeing as you have a good dedicated gpu.

I haven't purchased a CPU yet, so I should just buy a 2500k?

The one reason to buy an ivy bridge cpu is that it has PCIE 3.0 this means that in a year or two, you can pop in a $200 card with the performance of a GTX 690 that utilizes PCIE 3.0's extra bandwidth.
