The new PC I'm building is for rendering, editing, modelling and gaming; so was on the fence about dropping in an i5 or i7. This just solidifies that decision.
You were already going to perform tasks that greatly benefit from having the i7's HT technology, so... this solidifies what? Why were you even considering an i5 in the first place? --- "On a technical level, PC obviously. But because PC and Xbox have no games, PS3 wins." - ScreamingMidget They don't even try anymore.

By the time it makes an actual difference, both processors will be obsolete.
It's been making a difference since 2011.
Problem is, the i5 is still an overkill. You don't really need all that power on a processor if you are just gaming.
I've yet to OC my 4670K and it's still performing as much as I need it to. --- /|\ http://i.imgur.com/hK9c1lo.jpg?1 \|/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vE7x0WLz7SY

By the time an i7 can play a game where an i5 can't both will be hopelessly obsolete by newer processors. --- Fan of metal? Don't mind covers? Check out my youtube and give me some feedback http://www.youtube.com/sircaballero
