There are no big difference between the i7 and i5… i7 is good if you're a Streamer… if you uploads videos to YT, programing, editing…
I will say buy i5 and upgrade ram…

Pretty futureproof. More than 4 cores is not needed, especially if you have 4 intel cores, don't worry buddy. 6 or more cores are still a bit overkill.

Can vouch. Didn't want to spend the extra $20 on the K model, no regrets. The 3.5ghz (3.9 boosted) is more than enough for any game so far.

That's true, I misunderstood you, but IMO this refresh is kinda useless what's the point of 100mhz higher clocked i5 4670?It's just a waste of resources.

Intel cashing in. And yes there should definitely be a k version. I bought my cpu thinking I'd never want to overclock and now I know I would've been better off paying the extra $20.
