  1. Both are very good. The only difference is that the i7 has Hyper-Threading. Other than that, they are approximately equal in gaming prowess.
  2. Most people get the cheaper I5 for gaming since not really any difference in almost all games.
  3. The i7 also has a larger L3 cache, but still as said the i5 is a better choice.

    You are also comparing a Sandybridge to a Ivybridge.

    This is the newest i5, and it is cheaper.

    You'll need a LGA1150 motherboard though

    Edit here is the K if you are going to overclock
