Ha I'm in the same boat, actually have the 950 from micro center sitting in my desk unopened. Mobo on the way. I've gone back and forth.
I decided that the 2600k with tax and everything for me will be close to $400. Thats what I payed for this cpu and board. I don't really want to skimp down to the 2500k as it looks like the 950 will hang with it.
I think I will build this and then see what intel offers with socket 2011 later this year.
The date is like january 9th I believe. I called micro center they arem't sure when they will get them. I wonder if they will sell them at a discount right away?
2600k close to $400 is too much for me. Especially just for a cpu. I'll wait for ivy bridge.
