If you really want a solid experience you need to approach workstation levels... considering I own a titan, I am trying to get a friend from work who uses autodesk 2013 to bring over his copy and put my card to the test. He has been looking at trying to find a card that works well for him, but quadros are very expensive.
I agree, this budget is too low for both gaming and workstation. You would need, at minimum, a GTX 660 if you want to be doing this, with a quad-core intel/octa-core AMD.

Also you would need to do more to go to the 3570, like find a different motherboard, which costs more.

No, it would not. The motherboard would actually be cheaper. And I'm actually wondering how a FX-6300 OC'ed would be faster than i5-3570.. I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just quite confused how can that be..

As for the cooler, what would you recommend? Is there something cheaper than the True Spirit 120 that could handle an overclocked FX-6300 fine?

By the way, I know this budget doesn't allow for much, that's why I came here to get the best hardware for the money.

EDIT: Just checked prices now and they got lower, great!

Case - Coolermaster K350 (34,90€) => PCDiga
CPU - AMD FX-6300 (119,00€) => PCDiga
Mobo - ASRock 970 Extreme3 (74,90€) => Pixmania
GPU - VTX3D Radeon HD 7870 X-Edition (182,90€) => Pixmania
Memory - Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600 2x4GB (49,90€) => Pixmania
PSU - XFX Pro 450W Core Edition (49,90€) => PCDiga

Price: 511,50€

I'm trying to find something I can get better without increasing too much the build's cost.

The 3570 is actually not that fast at stock clocks at all, overclocked I'm sure that a 6300 could easily surpass it. Yes the True Spirit 120 will work just fine to get the overclock you need. And if there is any room in the budget, try for a GTX 660 or GTX 660 ti. It will greatly increase your 3D Rendering speed as most programs like Cuda cores for rendering.

Hmm, I'll take a look at the NVIDIA cards prices when I get home.

I saw some reviews of the GTX 660 and some benchmarks of it against the Radeon HD 7870 and it seems better than I thought!

I found some for a decent price:

- MSI GeForce GTX 660 OC - 2 GB GDDR5 - 179€
- MSI GeForce GTX 660 Twin Frozr OC - 2 GB GDDR5 + 3D Mark - 185,90€
- GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 660 OC - 2 GB GDDR5 - 182,90€
- PNY GeForce GTX 660 XLR8 Edition OC - 2 GB GDDR5 - 175,90€

Which one would you choose? Also, how about voltage? Is it locked?

Voltage shouldn't be locked on any of them. I would pick either the MSI Twin Frozr or the Gigabyte. Both will be good options. PNY is garbage that belongs there and why would you buy a slightly cheaper msi when you could get the one with better cooling and 3D mark for 6Euros more.
