Finding one on Ebay for 400 is down. They were going for double that just a couple months ago.

Bitcoin mining, just Google it for more of an explanation. Basically using compute power to mine a different currency.

ok, again, off topic but what is better for gaming, i would assume the i7 4770k is better the the i5 4670k, but i dont plan on overclocking. is it worth the extra 100- 75 dollars. also i plan on streaming with this computer. is the i5 good enough for that? thanks

Read this.
Your CPU and modern games: A guide to those building.

TL;DR
Gaming doesn't use HT, so an i5 would be perfectly fine.
