You probably wont see much unless you are really picky about how your games run, however if you want to see some comparison graphs Anandtech has this nice tool with several games benchmarked with these 2 CPU's.

I would second this, you don't really need the 2600k for games... the 2600k is more for heavily multi-threaded apps like 3D rendering or encoding.

wow that was helpful, the difference was less than expected with games such as fallout, however the other benefits are certainly making me think of getting the intel, just one example being the power which would also lead to be quieter im guessing

looking at that cpu comparison from Semper Fidelis i believe that even the i5 2500k is still a very good cpu yes, i think that will be the one for me

If you want to be able to overclock, you want to go P67. H67 is if you want to use the integrated graphics processor in the CPU (which isn't very good).

But I did hear something about the H67 being able to OC as well, but that still doesn't mean that that the onboard graphics is good... so you are just paying for features you probably won't use.

Also here is the 2500k vs 965 if you were curious:
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Produ...49.50.60.61.62

And here is the 2600k vs 2500k:
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Produ...0.60.61.62.129

As you can see the 2500k (grey bar) is actually ahead in some games, and that is even at stock clocks where it is 3.3GHz vs 3.4GHz of the i7 2600k.

well il be using my HD 6970 so i guess P67

also i see that as well as being as good as the i7 2600 it is certainly worth it compared to buying the 1366 i7 i mentioned, and the best thing, The Price! nice and cheap aint it....
