  4. For gaming the Intel® Core™ i5-3570K is the better value since very few games will use more than 4 threads. However if you are going to be using something like Adobe CS which can take advantage of a number of additional threads than go with the Intel Core i7-3770K or the Intel Core i7-2700K if you can get it for a lot less expensive.

    I think the i7 3770k also has a faster single thread performance than i5 right
  6. It does, but the i5 can be overclocked just as well (maybe better).
  7. If its in your budget get the better model the i7-3770K.
