You have 4 physical cores for multitasking, nothing like webrowsing, listen to music, using word processing, etc max out 2 cores and you have 4. HT only help in video encoring, decompressing etc but nothing MOST people will be using in their basic days.
2600k is not a 2500k with HT but people make it seems that way. just like the same with E8400, E8500, E8600, q9550, q9650 etc. all of them where a little higher in price because it has higher clock and little change in the multiplier. well guess what, 2600k also has higher clock and bigger cache than a 2500k. Would you notice the different..... probably not, but did people who bought a q9650 for $300 more notice the different from people who bought the q9550 aswell? they didn't. (only in benchmark). 2600k will always have a better resale value than the 2500k.

i have the same build as you
that if you don,t mind to some guy don,t want to shear
