Alright. Second question. I have an i3 processor, will it bottleneck my gpu? If so, i'm planning on getting an i7.

Getting a 2GB card is better for resolution 1080p or more.
But at your Resolution you will not cross more than 1GB of your VRAM.

And you'll easily play BF3 maxed out.

No it won't. But if you're planning to upgrade your CPU, you're better off with an i5. I forgot to say that BF3 multiplayer will benefit from an i5.

Yup, Multiplayer needs atleast 4 Cores.
It will run in i3 but not smooth as in i5.

I don't have much experience with overclocking cpu's. I have an h61 motherboard type.

The processor you planned on getting is a K Series CPU so I thought you were going to overclock it. You can't overclock with an H61 motherboard but it will work with that CPU. I just thought it makes more sense to save money instead.

You should get i5 3470. I too have this ;) 
Because you'll not be able to OC in that Mobo.

3470 is almost same as 3570k until you OC 3570k.

And i5 3470 is a little better for BF3

Hmm.....I should probably get a new motherboard though. See, I bought this computer from a store a year ago, but I wasn't tech-savvy then. So now i'm trying to upgrade everything in it.

If you're going to buy from Newegg the i5-3470 costs $20 more than the i5-3450 but only faster by 0.1GHz. I still think you should go with the i5-3450.

You can't compare 2 Different CPUs through their Core Speeds.
There isn't much a difference between them. But getting a better Model is worth it.

But I'd say get a Bigger screen. You'll not enjoy much in that resolution.

But getting a 3570k over 3470 isn't worth it until you OC it to 4.5 Ghz (You'll get 5-10 fps in CPU bound Games)
If you have the Money then get i5 3570k with Z77 Mobo.
3570k will be future proof and will be better in Softwares.

Remember that a bigger screen will need a bigger graphics card to go with it.

Could you find a good/cheap mobo? I have NO clue what I need.

If you are upgrading to a Bigger screen, then get a better GPU like GTX 660 or GTX 660 Ti.

At 1080p the HD 7850 1GB is an entry GPU and won't give you a smooth gameplay experience at that settings.

One last point. If you're gonna do some serious overclocking, consider getting an aftermarket cooler.

Edit: I have a feeling we've almost convinced you replace every components in your computer in an hour. :lol:

If you get a 1080p Monitor. Again total change.
I recommend this:-

i5 3470
Current Mobo
8GB Ram 1600Mhz
GTX 660

Which PSU you have?
I've recommended a great budget build. I have the same, Only my Mobo is a simple one.

If you really want to get a monitor first, then get the graphics card like HD 7870 or GTX 660 first and the CPU later.

Edit: A quality PSU with enough power is the most important. Here's a good $40 one after promo code and rebate if you need it.
