So, if I don't plan on waiting for the 2500K to arrive, should I go ahead and buy the 2300? Or should I buy a non-SB i7?
That was my question.
Here is what I found that compares the 2300, 2500k and 2600k with some of the older 1366 and 1156 i7s:

It shows the gaming comparisons in Crysis: Warhead and AvP using a GTX 570.

Hope this helps a bit more in your decision. From the looks of it, the 2300 isn't too shabby.

EDIT: I'm sure with Turbo Core, the 2300 would perform pretty close to a stock 2500k, which isn't anything to scoff at.

I've been eager to step up to Sandy Bridge, but I might just wait for the next line to come out. I typically upgrade every-other generation, rather then each new generation. But this test is very interesting indeed!
