i own i5 3570k, and the rest of my rig is great,
and someone offer me to trade his unused i7 3770k to trade with my cpu,
so, trade the cpu and add +50$ dollar, i get the i7.

Worth it right?

I would question why he is selling it at all. Why would he want an i5 when he as an i7?

If your only gaming on your rig, wouldn't bother. The i7 wont give you any performance boost.
If your video editing it might be worth it.

i use my computer for multiple reason, but since i saw crysis 3 and ps2, benchmark,(im a havey ps2 player), maybe i7 could aid a little,
i might do the video thing in few month to come, we will see

but since he offer me a really low price, i think it is enuf for me to forget to upgrade another 8 gb of ram first,
he selling that low because he is a trader+im a good friend with him.
