You're crazy for sitting on the Q9650 if you're in the US. You can sell your cpu used for more than it costs to grab a new 2500k. Yes, it's much faster than what you have now and your upgrade cost will be minimal if you do it right. I'd move on it now though before your cpu loses its price on the used market.

Thansks for the reply! After all these reccomendations I Definatley see myself getting the upgrade, however would it be best if I spent a bit more and went i7 for the extra threads and 'power' and it last me longer?
Since gaming is not a priority by any means at all, I think going with the 2600K would be a better purchase even though it could be £100 more than the 2500K! I mean, the 2600K is just about $100 USD more than the 2500K, so...
