The i5 is really overkill for current games. It's a great CPU. I have the AMD FX 6100. Also, the 7850 is really good. You can probably run Crysis 3 on Ultra with it. I can run it on High with my 7770. (Very High is the highest settings for Crysis 3).

Not really. I run it on high with my 7770. (Very High is the highest settings). Just because it is recommended to have a 7970 or GTX 680 doesn't mean that is what you have to have. It just means you can run it without putting a lot of stain of your GPU.

Not really. A lot of games are supporting 4 cores and the i5 is the sweet spot for it. The i7, on the other hand, is an overkill because games don't utilize hyperthreading.

He could go with the i5 2500K. Sorry I didn't specify that. My bad. The 2500K is a really good processor also

No need to go with old Sandy Bridge architecture for roughly the same price as Ivy.

Yes I prefer Ivy as well, he might also want to wait until the new series of Intel processors come out this year.
