But the 2500k. The 1055t beats it in all games benchmarks.
The 2600k beats the 1055t in most games, which it should considering it cost 2x more.
Fanboy. The 2500k destroys the 1055t, I'm using my 1055t until I get a new radiator.

In games the 2500k absolutely destroys anything AMD....

No. SB core's are much faster than phenom II's.

100% agree with this. I wholeheartedly feel that attempting to future proof a PC is a massive waste of time, tech comes and goes way to fast.

Right now SB is the way to go for gaming. It's hard to say if it's worth waiting for BD, will it actually launch on time? Will it outperform SB core for core? No one knows. And if you wait for BD is it worth then waiting for SB-E or Ivy Bridge? If you see what I'm saying here... Just get what is the best right now or you will be perpetually waiting for the next big thing.

Go intel on this, if it were a couple months from now i'd say amd. Also, I'd recommend the i5 instead of the i7. Much cheaper, and you can easily overclock to way past the i7 stock.

This benchmark could be of some use to you OP
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/147?vs=288

the 2500k stand up pretty well to the 1055T in most multithreaded applications, but when it comes to gaming, it absolutely slaughters it. Pick up a 2600k if you want the best of both worlds (8 threads, massive gaming performance) but on a budget the 2500k is a beast of a processor.

Also, the 2500k wont be heat limited as soon as the phenom ii, so it'll overclock MUCH better.

To be honest, there is no such thing as a futureproof CPU check out the LinusTechTips episode on his other channel at NCIXcom on youtube on futureproofing, basically just get what you need, if you are just gaming the i7 2600K is the way to go, not to mention its faster.

Go with Intel. Safest future investment. Phenom is crap before its needed time. No one needs 6-cores, and with those 6-cores, Intel continues to lead in performance, quality and durability.

Slaughters it if you run tests trying to show a huge improvement. If you actually show real world fps at 1080p, you'll see that the difference is rather small. It's even smaller if the Thuban cpu-nb is overclocked. I'm not knocking the 2500k, but c'mon, slaughters it in gaming? I can't even tell a difference from my 955

i just recently upgraded from a 1055t which was oc to 3.6ghz to a 2500k which is running at 4.7. for the price the 2500k is the only cpu should bother with in the current market. no comparioson, the 6 cores are good cpu's but not against the 2500k.
