nice assembly
no, as a student i guess nobody deals with anything near the complexity, i have done some other however outside college on my pc that were pretty complex. on pc worked fine, but laptop, yeah, not so good.
anyway on the subject i wouldn't say that he would notice much of a difference if he got 2600k instead of 2500k.
and as a student he doesn't need any better.
if you do that for a living, then that's the other story, then you get xeon or a workstation and a proffesional graphic card
but, again, that is for real work, not gaming on it

Yeah, I forget sometimes what it's like to not have a good solid income. So I'm usually looking for optimum performance regardless of price, within reason.

For example, I cannot justify $1000 for the 980x vs. $300 for the 2600k, but I can justify $100 more vs. the 2500k. If I were on a very tight budget I would be looking at the 2500k a little differently I suppose.
