which one will handle mmos and cpu based games better?

As a rule, I think the $100 price difference is better spent on a stronger graphics card.
Few games use more than 2-3 cores. Yes, there are some games that are multi threaded, and are also cpu bound. That might include FSX, and BF3 multiplayer. But, the hyperthreads of the 4770K are not fully capable cores/threads. They are perhaps the equivalent of 30% of a thread.
And, with a "K", you will be overclocking. Some have found that disabling thyperthreading on a 4770K gives them a slightly better overclock.
----------------bottom line--------
Go with the 4670K for gaming.

No. If you will be playing BF3 in multiplayer, the emphasis changes from gpu bound to cpu bound, and the 4770K should be superior.

The starting multiplier 3.5(4770K) vs. 3.4 (4670K)should not make much of a difference because the upper limit of overclocking will be about the same. How well you can OC is hugely dependent on your luck of drawing a good bin sample. 4.3 is a reasonable expectation(70%) but not guaranteed. I have suspicions that 4770K bins may be better than 4670K samples.
Regardless, the haswell cpu's are great chips, even at stock.

Thanks so if i understood right the difference between 4670k and the 4770k wont be that big right?

So how much of an improvement will you get from a 4670k to a 4770k in BF3/BF4 multiplayer?
