Differences between the last gen I5 are minor,like 2-3 more FPS in games..I saw benchmarks..

and you said it would be only for gaming so...
Why Buy something that is EOL when you can get IB which is current? Makes no sense.
Understandable that right now a lot of games might not grab CPU cycles for as much as we have at our disposal. But if you run enough background stuff, it adds up, and that is where these higher end CPU's shine.
