my answer: go with the 10600K, you want intel, you've made that more than obvious. It's the only chip of the two that's even worth it value wise and for gaming it's nearly perfect....
My opinion though, you should really consider an AMD build... performance per watt and performance per dollar are both better and sure you'll have to use process lasso on that one game, but are you really so stubborn that you'd be willing to pay more just to save a few clicks?
as for the if you game 70% comment above... my son went with amd due to budget constraints and is running a 2700x on his rig with a 1440p 144hz freesync monitor and is doing quite well... he tossed the money he saved into a better gpu.
