Which CPU should i get if i only plan on gaming for the next 3-4 years? i see a lot of people saying i5 4670k is the same as i7 4770k in gaming but than i also see people saying the newer games will use Hypethreading more and more so im not sure which CPU should i get. Are there any games out right now that benefits from HT? and if there are how much of a fps increase does HT give? Please only help if you really understand and know this stuff, thanks.

Im gonna pair the cpu up with a single gtx 780ti.

no one can tell the future. its hard to say what future proofing for 4 years from now is. at this point in time i5 is plenty and more then enough for gaming.

The i5 4670K should be plenty. Games seem to be becoming less CPU-bound, hopefully this trend continues. If it does CPU should be less of an issue for gaming in the future, but even if it continues the 4670K will be sufficient for quite some time. I've heard some people say they found having hyperthreading enabled on an i7 improved SLI setups somewhat, but I can't vouch for how much merit there is in such a statement. The 4670K should be fine even for SLI 780 Tis.

If you have got the money buy the i7 4770k. If you don't have that type of money buy the i5 4670k. Both, like said before should be good into the future.
