No difference worth the price increase. There are VERY few games that will properly take advantage of hyperthreading.

I have not noticed any difference at all, the 3570k is a awesome chip I absolutely love it other then the IVY heat issue that is extreme to say the least, well it reads out as hot but does not put off tons of heat. I will be posting a build in the coming weeks that I use that CPU but it was the special edition with intel water cooling and I think its great. dont waste your money on the 3770 its not worth it :)

Battlefield 3 uses 8 threads and thus will benefit from the 3770k.

More games will come out that will be able to use more threads. It certainly can't hurt to have twice as many threads.
