Heh I was in the same position you were in, but I was considering the octo-core Bulldozer vs. an i5-2500K.. and I'm definitely choosing the i5-2500K. After the NDA lifted last night, all the legit benchmarks came out showing AMD lagging a bit behind in most benches, and consuming ~100 watts more than an i5-2500K under load.

I'm considering swinging by microcenter today to grab an LGA 1155 mATX mobo and the i5-2500K

There is *only* one reason to choose a FX8150 over an i7 2600k:
High-def encoding and you don't give a crap about power consumption.

For everything else: i5 2500k or i7 2600k.

I thought all the reviews were about the FX8150, are there some doing reviews on the FX6100 and FX4100? Just curious if the game changes on the lower end parts, sort of like how the 2500K is a better buy than the 2600K for gaming.
