If you are going to bench then core i7 2600k is better but for enthusiast gamer core i5 2500k is best.
2500k beats 2600k in gaming performance or almost similar rating on most of the games.and 2600k not worth the extra 100$ regarding performance oppose to core i5 2500k.

'better' is a subjective term at best.....

Hence why he used the phrase "Enthusiast gamer"

Should probably have specified 'value/enthusiast' vs. 'performance enthusiast'...

The 2600K is $100-$110 more, granted...; initial testing seems to support the 2600k having a little more OC headroom (100-200 MHz?), plus a larger cache of course...
