Generally speaking the 2600k is a lot better for gaming. 2500k is probably a better choice as almost no games use more than 2-3 cores MAX, so having 8 vs 4 threads will not see any performance boost, and it costs about $100 less.

If you *should* upgrade is a different question entirely, and depends if your system is limited by the cpu or graphics. Consider that to upgrade your cpu, you'd also need a different motherboard, as well. It might be a better route to upgrade your graphics card, if you are wanting to play on higher settings.
