Kind of hard to say without knowing what the budget is.
On Ebay, the Intel Core I7-3770s are going for around $80. If the plan is to upgrade the entire core system sooner than later, then that $80 would be better put towards the new CPU/Motherboard/RAM. If you're looking at a couple years down the road before you can afford the new motherboard/CPU/RAM, then it might be worthwhile to get the Core I7-3770 now

Here's a timely article from Anandtech comparing the i7-2600K to the i7-7700K and i7-9700K. I think it illustrates the fact that we've gone though enough years of "incremental" improvements, that the SB/IB/Haswell era CPUs are ready to be retired, especially for 1080p gaming.
Obviously Anandtech is testing in games that are known CPU-bound (GPU-bound games will exhibit less performance deficit), and no online/multiplayer testing (CPU-heavy), so take that into consideration.
