For almost everything else, the i7-2600K is cream of the crop and much cheaper. Also, the 2700K is supposed to make an appearance soon. It really depends on what you do with your PC. Mainly gaming 2500K or 2600K, super heavy multi-tasking very cpu intensive stuff, 990X or 975 overclocked.
ok let me put it another way.....
what will give me the best overclock speeds stable? i dont care about multi tasking and such, but if the 990x gives me more overclock room/performance then 990x it is. Well?

to match your GPUs - YES. a high-end cpu for a high-end gpu(s).

the best mid-range cpu like the 2nd gen i7 2600 will work like others are saying.

so then i should of stayed with the Bulldozer???
