Upgrade your RAM, PSU, and video card. Then save for SB-E or IB which will make all SB users cry like little babies. I suggest the 6950 1GB for budget and cheaper than 560, and 2GB 6950 for slightly more than 560. I also suggest the GTX460 for extreme budget.

Yeah I went from I5 750 to a 2600K an couldn't be happier. Not a nanosecond do I regret it. System is much much faster, games seem to fly, even stuff like Metro which struggled earlier.

Metro should be the same speed on either really.

I went from an i5 750 @ 3.6 to an i7 2600k @ 4.5Ghz.

I sold my 2600k because I have no use for it.
If you never saw your CPU at 100% usage then no, keep your 1156 setup and add some ram and an SSD and maybe change your GPU

No, what the hell? That's like going from a used Droid 2 to a new Droid 2, there's hardly any damn difference.

Umm, there shouldn't be. The reason you are running faster is driver improvements. Trust me.

I have not seen any benches that show the 2600K having more than a very slight performance increase over the 2500K, however one thing to consider is that the 2600K can usually reach a higher OC. Still I think the 2500K will be more than enough for BF3. I think the main thing people will need to upgrade for BF3 will be video cards.
