i5 4670k vs i7 4770k

I am going to buy a new pc. First i was thinking of i7 4770k then I saw this

So it says i5 4670k and i7 4770k are the same and hyper threading does nothing on gaming. Then I found another like that said hyper threading had an effect in which i7 4770k was ahead

So what's real plz help me.

  1. If your building strictly a gaming machine go 4670k.

    Into Video editing and high end production software go 4770k with a lot of ram.
  2. Do you have a need for Hyper-Threading, use any apps that require it? If not the 4670K is prob the better choice - what do you plan on doing with your new rig?
  3. The i7 is "better" but it's usually not worth the extra $100-120 in gaming. The 4670k offers 95% of the performance making it a much better value.
  4. I am basically going for gaming.So Hyper-Threading has no effect at all on gaming.

    Save your money the 4670k is the way to proceed.
  6. K thanks to all.
  7. Have fun building.
  8. Yes the extra $100-120 would be better put on the video card.
