but this will be final now, because i need to purchase this today/tomorrow for it to be built because it can take 1-2 weeks to arrive.

Both can max Watch Dogs.

Even though I love AMD, but I say go with the Intel Core i7 4770k as its slightly better and has better benchmark scores, its also only £15 more expensive, has lower temperatures and TDP.

So just go with the 1st choice.

Get the 4770k. Any game that will use more than 4 cores will most likely also use hyperthreading.
