This has been answered so many times, the 2500k is all you will need for gaming and semi intensive apps, and for folding you should go with the 2600k.

yea, if you can afford the 2600k, it's the best of both worlds

the 212+ would not be sufficient if you go above 4.5ghz, especially when folding 24/7
