What a coincidence, I actually answered a similar question before lol.

Well, in short, the i7 has hyperthreading, which is like having 8 virtual cores instead of the 4 physical ones that the i7 actually has.
Most games don't take advantage of this technology so most gamers go for the cheaper i5 which still has 4 cores yet still has the same overclocking capabilities as the i7. Well, only the "k" versions

Because they outperform the FX series and match the i7's on most games.
