I've read a lot about the two.
i5-3570k is good enough if main purpose is gaming.
i7-3770k is only useful for certain programs (graphics, compression, etc)

Having said that,

From price point of view

i5-3570k around $230

i7-3770k around $290~300 (tigerdirect deal)

Would you spend extra $70 for i7-3770k if your main purpose is gaming? (because i7 is on a good deal while i5 is just standard price. and i7 is better cpu even without using hyper-threading)
