My System Specs

Default i5-3570k or i7-3770k for gaming/fraps

Hey everyone!
Been a little out of the hardware world.. I used to check the forums regularly.
My nephew wants to make a brand new computer! His first ever!

I gave him my old GPU and PSUs and Cases etc. He's picking out the motherboard which will most likely be an MSI z77 board due to it's low price.

I'm curious which processor would be better for him.. He loves to use fraps and gaming. Does a bit of video editing. Is the hyperthreading of the 3770k worth the extra 100 dollars he would have to spend? Or, could I just OC his i5-3570k and achieve a similar speed?
