Go with the 2600k, on my other rig, it out performed my 990x at 4ghz while my 2600k was at only 5.1ghz. Much cheaper, new technology, but if at all possible, hold out for Ivybridge because we should be seeing a HUGE leap forward, as Intel claims it is going to require half the voltage of previous processors. IE, ALOT less heat.
