What do you want to do with your computer?
If you're going to be editing videos/photoshop work, or folding CPU only 24/7 (or anything that uses hyperthreading) then the 2600k/2700k is going to be an upgrade. However, for something like gaming (or anything that doesn't utilize hyperthreading) the 2500k and 2600/2700k will perform exactly the same, so you might as well put the money toward a 680.
