    The i5-760 will be in the junk bargain bin.Die LGA 1156 just die.
  3. i5 2500K is much better. According to Anandtech, it is slightly better than current i7 with mainstream price.

    I meant the i5 2500K but the i7 2600K will do just as nicely for a little more money :)
  6. 2500k will be better . just wait 1 more week
