Hi, I have an i5 4670k intel CPU, and was wondering how much of a performance difference I would see if I were to get the i7 4670k; ie: what is the performance difference between i7 processors and their i5 counterparts?

Depends heavily on how you plan to use it. For gaming only, the 4670k is the best value, but for rendering and other CPU-intensive tasks the 4770k is better.

i7 has more power in yhper threading. For gaming i7 is nothing more than i5. Better you go for i5 and if you need greater performance in special tasks with hyper threading you can go for i7.

So hyperthreading is the main difference between i7s and i5s?
