What you've stated is already what has happened to PC gaming, the number of games developed on PC is few and far between. The fact that the newer consoles are closer to PC hardware just means we'll probably end up with BETTER ports of the games than before. I wouldn't expect any significant price drops, that rarely happens these days.

As long as FPS gaming is still around, PC gaming will not die, cuz gamepads are inferior and they apparently will never give us native mouse/kb support in online console games cuz it's too big of an advantage. UT3 had it, and they disabled it server-side by default cuz they knew gamepad users wouldn't stand a chance. Although I wouldn't want to play with 30 fps on a console with a mouse anyway so that's fine by me, I'll stick to PC while console users may finally get 1080p graphics (at much lower framerates, and still only 60hz output from PS4). I'll take my 144hz monitor and Razer Deathadder over a PS4 any day.

As far as the OP's question, you should consider whether hyper-threading is really going to help you in the near future (aka, do you play BF4 or one of the very few games that actually utilize it, or do video encoding). I'm on the fence myself to build a new PC for a friend, he wants to play BF4 and so far even those benchmarks are almost identical between non HT cpus and HT cpus, I assume that will change once it's optimized further though so I'll probably try and get him an i7-3770k or 4770k depending on price when I pull the trigger. I'm tempted to just order him an i5-3570k though.

Looks like the 4771 supports some extra features that are useful in the enterprise:

VPro, VT-d, TSX-NI and Trusted Execution Technology, but it's multiplier locked.

if youre going to upgrade to multi monitor in the future, go for the 4770k since most likely you will be using a multiple graphics card as well, because it might bottleneck* your graphics cards

*if such a word exist nowadays, lol

err.. damn... the i7-2600k is a really great chipset too, the only upgrade i can see in your signature is your mobo + gpus which you are getting 680s - (why not 2x 780s instead? biggrin.gif) but yeah iunno anyways LMK IF YOU ARE SELLING YOUR i7-2600k and what kind of abuse you put through it :0

Intel's specs link:
http://ark.intel.com/compare/75123,75124,77656

I'm also upgrading from 2 monitors to 3, and from (2) 560ti's to 680 (possibly 2 in sli), as well as looking to replace my Sabertooth P67 with something more up to date like the new X87 or possibly the Maximus VI.

I dont see any reason for doing what you are about to to.
1st. Keep the 2600k
2nd. Get more ram.
3rd. Sell ur 560 and buy gtx 780/titan or amd r9 290/x

The reason is that the cpu difference between 2600k and haswell w/e is not gonna give you more performance boost then going from low end gpus to high end.

I too do not understand the urgency to ditch your 2600k. 4770k is technically an upgrade, but by the slimmest of margins.

Wow yea I agree 100%, I didn't notice in your sig that you had a 2600k already. You should just wait dude.

I've been looking all around at benchmarks (mostly BF3/BF4), and my CPU (i7-2700k) is consistently at the top of every list within 5 FPS of all these new CPUs. If anything I would invest in a badass cooler and OC the **** out of your 2600k. I'm running my 2700k at 4.7GHz on air cooling without issue, my temps are not great but probably still lower than it would run on stock cooling with turbo mode and it's been nothing but stable since February when I got this for $220. Probably the best deal I've gotten on a top of the line CPU since I snagged my Q9550 from microcenter for $200 a couple years ago.

If 2700ks were still available for reasonable prices I would buy it for my friend in a second, but they are over $300 at any store that still has them. This is why I don't agree with the guy who mentioned price drops due to PS4, seems like the last generation of CPUs just vanish or appear at insane prices when the new stuff comes out rather than actually being available for cheaper, they don't produce as many pieces as they did years back when you could find 2-3 year old CPUs to buy still.
