Just wondering about how these 2 CPU's compare for gaming. And your reasons why :D 

Intel i7 2600 vs Intel i5 3570K. (Note, the 2600 is not "k")

I will be using Crossfire for Eyefinity with either 2x 7970's or a single 7990. Also dont plan on overclocking if its not needed.

Definitely the i5. The i7 will be slow at stock and can't be pushed later for more performance.
