figured it's about time to upgrade my aging dual core, especially with CPU intensive games like bf3 being released. I only use my rig for gaming and I'm aware that the 2500k is faster but I what I really want to know is which one is more future proof. When games start fully utilizing 6+ cores will the the 1090T start giving better performance because of the extra cores or will the 2500k always perform better?

by the time games fully utilize 6 cores, that 1090t will be long since forgotten. don't worry about those cores. get yourself a 2500k. it's an absolute no brainer. it's the easiest component to pick when building yourself a purely gaming rig.

2500k has much higher IPC, so the majority of games it will do better on. Even when games start fully taking advantage of as many threads as possible, the 2500k with it's high OC potential will probably be close if not faster than the 1090T if all threads were being used. And looking forward, you can get many boards that support PCI-E 3.0 and Ivy Bridge (PCI-E 3.0 only becomes supported when Ivy Bridge CPU is installed) which is looking a lot more favorable than Bulldozer's successor- Piledriver.

A maxxed clocked 2500K( watercooled ) beats a maxxed clocked 1090T (watercooled ) in everything, including encoding.

2500K is the better buy.

By the time games even think of using 6cores phenom will probably be as hard to get as a pentium 3/4 lol
get yourself a 2500k with a ge 3 z68 mobo its future prof you can go 2600k/2700k or ivy bridge when ever you have to

K, so just to make sure. A 2500k will always perform better than a 1090T. Because when it comes to CPU's I only upgrade when it's no longer able to get a decent fps (which is why I've still got a core2duo.)
