When I tested my SB against my Q9650. I found it was 30% faster clock for clock!
And so, a 2500k at 3.7GHz is like a Q9650 at about 5GHz
So if you had $1300 for the entire box what would you build. I need top of the line reliable parts and great cooling. I don't want this thing to fry out because of janky parts. LOL I'm an AMD builder so not caught up with Intel. Also I want a 6950 gfx card.

This, for true future proofing, get the 2500k. Will be good for a long time to come.

so realistically what are you telling me......That if I had a 2500k with my xfire 5830's for example with my 955 at 3.8ghz that i would see what like 5 fps more in modern games with a 2500k? what are the gains going to be.
