That is true! The SB MC is on die and much improved from the 1366 socket cpu's MC.
For CPU performance, the 980x/990x still wins out over the SB. But not for long! I'm sure the Ivy Bridge will take care of that, also with more PCI-E lanes

$100 premium for HyperThreading if you get the 2600K. That $100 can go towards an SSD.

Just an ultimate suggestion from me for your case.

For gaming yes.

Hyperthreading does nothing for games because games are not using more than 4 cores. If you plan on folding or something like that then go for the 2600k...Otherwise go for the 2500k if you decide to go the Sandy route...

Either way, if your considering between a 980X or a Sandy, I'd suggest you go with a Sandy, then get a couple of 580's

I have never been familiar with SSD. What would you recommend then using the 2500K?

Go with Sandy Bridge unless you're running many virtual machines, video rendering, photo editing, etc etc... all day long.

I'd say wait until we see for sure what BD has to offer!
8 cores could be a bonus!!!!! When it comes to rendering!
Won't be long now. I hope!!!!
