OK, Circles are Square and Oranges are Blue.

Can you find a GPU isolating benchmark that shows a 560 or whatever with a Phenom II X6 vs a 560 or whatever with a 2500k? Cause I am just going off stuff I took a second to research and other stuff learned from here. If you find one, you've proved me either right or wrong and we can both sleep at night.

i5-2500k = 15-25% faster than 1090T (At stock mind you)

Price Difference

i5-2500k $230
Gigabyte ATX Board = $135

Total Cost = $365

Phenom II X6 1090T = $200
Gigabyte ATX Board = $105

The i5-2500k Will cost you around $60 more than the 1090T for the 15-25% performance difference...
(NOTE: You should always compare similar motherboard across the 2 different architects for price difference as well)

Is that worth it to you?

Sometimes the Phenom II X 6 will beat the i5-2500k in Video Benchmarks..
So if your heavy into video, then the Phenom may be a better choice, due to price..

Otherwise it's looking like the i5-2500k is a better choice...

Especially when you consider how well the i5 overclocks on air (5 GHz)...

Thank You. Can you say something about future-proofness so I can sleep now.

Also, that method only applies when your GPU is like a 5970 and your CPU is an Athlon XP. Not when your GPU is a 5970 and your CPU is either a Phenom II X6 1055T or an i5 2500k. Check a GPU isolating benchmark.
Hate to tell you buddy but yeah the cpu will still choke, a Phenom 2X4 945 at 4.0 still bottlenecks gpus, I know because I had a setup like that. My 6870s choked and compared to an i7 there was almost a 25fps difference JUST FROM THE PROCESSOR. The cpu is still very important, if not AS important as a good gpu for gaming.

I'd like to see this bench where the X6 beats the 2500K, no way it does unless it's a bias bench, anyways, this is overclock.net, where OP will have AT LEAST 4.5GHZ which will rape a phenom at 4GHZ or even 4.2, go 2500K all the way you will not regret it, at this point in time buying AMD is stupid because the architecture is so far behind Intel, hopefully Bulldozer opens up some options.

Okay, thanks. Anyways, to the OP, I would currently recommend waiting for either Bulldozer or SandyBridge-EN. Good night.

There's no such thing as "future proof" but if you want to play that card, the 2500K is more future proof VS the soon to be obsolete AM3 platform.

Bulldozer will only work on AM3+. That means whether you go AMD now or not, to upgrade you will need a new motherboard + CPU IF Bulldozer delivers.

What if it doesn't? Then the 2500K is far more "future proof" since Ivy Bridge processors will be available for the 1155 socket.

I did this earlier for a reason.

The logic behind save $60 now so you can upgrade later is flawed in so many ways.

Can you show me a market full of gpu isolation games?

No effence, but an I5 2500k being compared to a 1090T is unfair. One is based of 32nm architecture and the other is based on 45nm architecture. If you want to build one now, yes, Intel is faster and overall better (and im a huge AMD supporter... not fanboy). Although, if you have time then wait for bulldozer. It will drive the 1090t price down, and provide solid competion for the Sandy Bridge 2500k (hopefully, or else all that hype is a hole in the ground).

i5 2500k i dont think bulldozer will beat the sandy bridges. i cant believe the speed of this processor you can run multiple games at once and alt tab between and it goes back and forth like your switching web browser tabs. and if bulldozer does beat the sandy bridges then in a few months you can upgrade to ivy bridge which is suppose to a 20-30% increase over sb.
