Does it OC Well?

The Price is nice!

Will I see a noticeable Jump from a 1100T
I would hold out for IVY but I learned that lesson (DIE AMD)

Also My goal is to build a Rig to SMASH SKYRIM! so no gpu bottleneck in CF
2600k Should handle 2 6950s with ease right?
My friend, an Q6600 from 6 years ago OC'd to 3Ghz would still handle Skyrim with ease. Remember Skyrim is a console port. And whether or not 2 x 6950's will handle it is dependent on what resolution you plan to game at. You'll also want to try and get the 6950 shaders unlocked to 6970's and add a bit more overclock for some extra performance in other games.
