I'm not sure if i should get a i7 4770k or wait for the 6 cores to get cheaper. A lot of games are at 4 cores now so im worried that in 2 or 3 years, demanding games are gonna require 6 cores.
So far only BF 4 benefits from Hyper Threading. Technically any game that is based on the Frostbite engine can take advantage of HT as well unless it's a feature that is disabled. However, most games do not benefit from HT so dropping down to an i5-4670k is a more economical solution. The i7-4770k will cover all your bases if you want to splurge a bit.
If you really, really wanna drop a decent amount of cash, then go for thei7-4930k. I don't think it is really necessary, but that's just my opinion. Yes, BF 4 multiplayer will use all 6 cores, but only 1 instance of Hyper Thread. That's a total of 7 threads.
