What Cpu Is Better For Gaming?

I am building a gaming pc and was just wondering what cpu to get. Here are my chooses:
Intel Core i7-2700K- http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-i7-2700K-Processor-HyperThreading-Technology/dp/B005X55OR6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1349465646&sr=8-1
Intel 3rd Generation Core i7-3770K- http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-Generation-i7-3770K-3-50GHz-Technology/dp/B007X1JM30/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1349201058&sr=1-1

    3rd gen is definitely better. ddr3 1600 memory controller (unless all other cpus which have 1333) and a pci-e 3.0 graphic controller.
    But the fact that the i7 really offers zero performance over the i5 in gaming, get the i5-3570K and spend the extra money for your graphics.

    For gaming, you won’t require an i7 processor, since the main feature of i7 processors is hyperthreading, which games really don’t require.
    I would recommend you go for the i5-3570K or the i5-2500K. Both of those processors can also be overclocked.
    Last note that the graphics card of your computer will have a far, far greater effect upon gaming performance than the CPU.

    Machine Gun Preacher is an enjoyable movie, except for the first 100 minutes
