so an i7 is not really necessary then?

What are you using to base what's "necessary" or not? By my understanding and feelings, "necessary" would include your Q9400 @ 3.6Ghz for anything currently at the moment. Unless your sig rig isn't what you're running, I wouldn't say you need to upgrade anything except maybe your GPU.

If all you do is game then go AMD and spend the money saved on a better GPU...

1090T vs 2500K = $30 difference

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/288?vs=146

Make sure to see where the benchmark description states "Higher is better" & "Lower is Better".

Results:

2500K outperformed the 1090T in 40 benchmarks
1090T slightly outperformed the 2500K in 2 benchmarks

Plus, the 2500K will Overclock MUCH higher on AIR vs the 1090T.

Is it worth the extra $30? You betcha!

And no, for the uses you described, you don't need the 2600K.

When SB is back you can get boards for as little as $150 - $180, and you only need 4 GB RAM as well.

The whole AMD is cheaper to build argument has been tossed out the window with the 2500k.

For new rigs 1366 is no longer worth it.

If you're in a rush to build, you won't be disappointed with SB.

If you can wait it out, I too also recommend waiting for BD to see what it is bringing to the table, only thing is, there's no set release date besides Q2.

Indeed, Sandy Bridge can OC to 5GHZ and beats Phenom II clock-for-clock, ect. But what does it mean for the gamer?

Nothing. I beat the pants off the best Sandy Bridge score (with same GPU) with my mildly overclocked 1090T. Gaming performance is GPU driven. The random guy here obviously didn't overclock his GPU enough. Mine was at 1000/1200. He sure did spend more on his CPU though (I got mine for $185, $165 after combo discount).
