Towards the bottom of the link I posted from AnandTech, the i5 blows the x6 out of the water in DA: Origins, Dawn of War II, and WoW (double-digit FPS gains)

I was thinking about a second graphics card but as you say my motherboard only does x16 x4 crossfire and I have read many many horror stories with crossfire. After upgrading to i5 I would look into a new gpu and sli 2 cards. I was looking at the i7 2700k but I don't think it's much better for gaming than a i5 2500k and it's double the price!

The 2500k is alot faster than a 1090T and it scales way better when you overclock. A 1090T is comparable to an FX-8120, nothing AMD offers is on the level of sandy bridge.

The i5 2500k beats the 1090t every regard gaming wise. The i5 even beats the FX cores in terms of gaming using Multi-GPUs as well. On top of that, you will get lower power consumption and have the road to go Ivy Bridge in the future.

You will definitely see an improvement gaming wise. But, whether the extra money you put into a new system is worth it or not, is up to you.

The 2500k TOTALLY wipes the floor with a 1090T in gaming with higher tier multi-gpu setups since the 1090T starts bottlenecking pretty quickly (with a single GTX 580 even).
In your case however with a single 6950, there wont be a noticable difference imo.

I upgraded from a 1090t to a 2600k because of the bottleneck the 1090t did for my 6970's in crossfire.
I didnt want to upgrade cause i had the Maximus IV Extreme, and it meant i had to sell it at a loss and go for a new board as well.
But ill tell you that the intel chip let my cards fly free.
Big difference in gaming.
