  1. I would go for the i7. The 2600k is faster than the 3570k. The i7 is a good choice for gaming, and audio/video editing.
  2. i5 3570k for $100 less is worth it for some. i7 2600k is faster and will overclock better. Booth are equally good for gaming in my opinion.
  3. the i7 is futureproof for next gen games.

    I'd go with the i7-2600K http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004FA8NOQ/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B004FA8NOQ&linkCode=as2&tag=b0b929-20 I was an early adopter for the 2600K and it has been nothing but an amazing processor and will last many years.

    The i7 2600k + asus z68 v pro is only 20-25$ expensive than i5 3570k+ asus z77 extreme 4. is this a good deal. and will it perform better than the i5 for future games . Having a dilemma :s

    I would personally get the i5 4670k haswell cpu. Games don't really use 8 threads now hence 3570k might have a slight advantage over the i7 2600k sandy bridge in games now.

    but its only 20$ expensive and i dislike the 4th gen
  6. For $20 I'd go with the i7 all day.
