The I5 2500k with GTX 580 will perform better than the I7 2600k with GTX 570. Games don't use hyperthreading at the moment. I can't really see developers designing games that use hyperthreading any time in the near future either.
However the 570 will get 50 FPS min on max settings in Battlefield 3 at 1080p so your call.

I would go with the i5-2500k
A good CPU cooler or
and then a 580 that you can overclock even more
If you have a good 600w PSU you won't need to upgrade it. What brand of PSU is it?

It's a corsair....(:

Then you'll be fine staying with that PSU as long as you don't SLI.

Side note. Ivy bridge is rumored out the end of the month. I'm not sure when you are planning on purchasing this but I see you are purchasing a Z77 mobo. It'll be a 10-15% upgrade at hopefully same cost as current CPU's. It might take a bit for the prices and stock to stabilize on them though.
