I don't know where you got this information, but I believe it is incorrect. The TDP for the Core i7-3770K is 77 W, while the TDP for the Core i7-2600K is 95 W. See our review.
and then after being showed evidence:
This discussion only affects people who overclock their CPUs. How much of the market is that? Probably less that 1%.

*shaking my head*.First he dismisses the possibility, then when hes shown evidence he justifies it.. Theres a reason people buy CPUs with unlocked multipliers...... The amount of people who utilize the feature is irrelevant, if his information isnt thorough.

I will to use a little overclock, maybe up to 4ghz. Not much i think.

However, this build are used to gaming and movie edition.

I think you'll be happy with either choice you make, my vote is to go with whichever is cheapest.

For overclocking though you need to make sure there is a "k" at the end. so it would be i7-3770k
