yup. i am kinda tempted to get a 6700k when i build a pc. i wont be upgrading in a couple of years and i want a lot of cpu power. is it worth it to pay the extra for hyperthreading and the extra power?
For everything you said you would use your PC for, you would not see any noticeable benefit from the i7 with HyperThreading. i5 would be much better value for you, especially seeing as you can use the money saved to get better other parts or get that R9 390 sooner.
I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.
