Question about Hyper Threading

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am going to order everything hopefully tomorrow, and I am still unsure about what cpu to get. The i5-2500k or the i7-2600k. I will be using my computer for gaming. But I might do some light video editing. I don't mind paying $100 extra for the 2600k. How bad is hyper threading for gaming?

HT adds about 15% boost in performance of a cpu extensive applications however it is not bad for gaming but it is far better for video editing and converting it does not affect gaming performance it is good if yu could buy i7 2600k or buy a i5 2500k and overclock it to around 4.5GHz
