That resolution isn't high for that card.
No it wouldn't bottleneck at that resolution.

Nope, it should be fine at that resolution.

It will.
At that resolution a HD7850 would be able to hit highest settings quite easily.

EDIT:
Guess I should elaborate, given the conflicting answers.
It will bottleneck in the sense that you can easily get more performance from the card, but at that resolution that performance cant be used. You will hit max settings in games, and the GPU will still be able to perform better.
Running that graphics card on a 1080p screen wont bottleneck it, because then the card becomes the bottleneck (in some intensive games), as it will hit its max performance trying to push that many pixels.

HD7850 is an overkill at that resolution since the game gets CPU bound at lower resolution so there will be a bottleneck and the card not capable of using its performance potential.

This what I was trying to say, but he has managed to say it better.

Yes Overclock will help and increase overall performance since it will reduce the CPU bottleneck!

Only if you are not satisfied with the frame rates you are already getting. There is little to no point in pushing frame rates beyond your LCD's refresh rate.
