Well as it seems there is barely any difference.
Core i7 3770 hyperthreading test (20 games tested)

But you never know about the future. The i7 is great for multimedia like rendering or even game streaming.
The 6600k on the other hand is already a very strong cpu. Like the 2500k which is 5 years old and is still going strong.

i7-6700K is a bit overkill, but you might just as well... there is little to be gained from going to an i5-6600K and trying to OC it to i7-6700 levels.
The Skylakes are poor overclockers (compared to SandyBridge ) IMHO smile.gif

I do have to add that there is a strong chance that multithreading will see more benefit with DX12 implementation. so a few years from now where the games are written specifically for DX12, there may be more benefit in having i7 rather then i5. however, WHEN the DX12 games actually come out and are optimized for those functionality is anyone's guess biggrin.gif we may be looking at another tic, toc, toc cycle before that's reality.

has alot to do with whether you decide to delid the skylake or not. sandybridge was soldered where as skylake is just using goop.
