Stick with your current Radeon 7850 for now. It is still a great card and you'll be able to get a bit more out of it for the next couple of months. If you REALLY want to switch, go for the GTX 670, casue it is one of the best cards out right now.

if you are going to be gaming go ahead and save the $100 and get an i5 3570k and I would pick the 670, I am building a similar build as you.

What does not play as well as you'd like? Anything? A three-tier jump is all the way to a GTX680. That's a lot of money to spend.

Well then, if you're happy with the performance of the HD7850, there's no need to spend more. If you aren't, then look at HD7870 < HD7950 < GTX670 in order of ascending power. Just be aware that the AMD cards won't offer PhysX, and the compute performance of Kepler is gimped (for things like folding or bitcoin mining).
If you'd be happy with less (oh the horrors! You might even save some money!) consider the GTX560Ti (unless you play Skyrim) or HD6870.

There is no point of wasting money on an i7 if you are going to be gaming, the hyper threading does not help at all and in some gaming tests the i5 actually out performs the i7, I would get the i5 3570k and the EVGA 670 FTW and spend the extra $100 you save from CPU and get an SSD or maybe upgrade your case or something.

If the money is available, feel free to check around; someone (Techpowerup? Guru3D?) has a $/FPS chart that might show a spike at a different price point, but I'm not sure. Otherwise, like I said if you're happy with it, then there's no need to get anything more expensive.
As to your mobo choice, I typically buy ASRock; same or more features for less money than Asus or Gigabyte, and every review of an ASRock board I've read has pointed out they use the same quality components (e.g. ferrite core chokes and all solid capacitors) as anyone else.
