The 3770K adds Hyper-Threading, 2MB more cache, and an extra 100MHz of clock speed.

the 3770K Is just an i7 w/ 2MB more Cache, 100Mhz higher core clock, and HT which doesn't really help in games, but in video rendering.

 

If it was my $$$, 3570K.

thats the only difference :/ is realy worth another 100 dollars? and will it make a big difference in gaming

Virtually no difference in gaming, as most games don't really use 4 threads anyways...moreover 8.
Hyper-threading can help in some games, in some crazy res, with lots of GPUs paired (SLI/CX).

in terms of gaming, the differences would be very absolute that it would make a very tiny difference or no difference depending on the game.

Hyperthreading as said by others can be benefited by very limited games also would be helpful for processing large files.

I was thinking of going for the 3770k but since the difference is really not that huge (specially in gaming) i saved myself 100 bucks and went for the 3570k and overclocked it to 4.3ghz which gives pretty decent performance
