Hello, I'm not a gamer at all but for the price difference I'd get the i54670K, which is what I have done. I don't think many games will take advantage of the i7's hyper threading, and that's the major difference in the two.

Save the $100, get the Core i5 and put the money towards an SSD or a better graphics card. What other components are you looking at?

How many hard drives, graphics cards, etc? I know you'll need a Haswell mobo, but there are a sack-full of them to choose from. What kind of budget are you working with?

What parts are you reusing?

Dual graphics cards will pretty much eat through that budget
