Did he mention bf3?? NO he didnt, Did you read his question NO you didnt. In another thread you claim the 920 is best bang for buck yet hear you tell him to buy a 2600k ?????
In gaming it has already been said a million times the best bang for buck cpu is the 2500k
you would be best putting the difference of the 2500k 2600k on a better gpu
9/10 games don't utilize hyper threading, So yes if you can blow the extra $$ for 2600k then by all means do it but 9/10 it is better to upgrade your gpu with the money saved as the difference between a 2500k and 2600k in games is next to nothing
Care to read more proof
