For gaming, you DEFINITELY want Sandy Bridge. The i5-2500 ~ i7-950, and the i5-2500k crushes even some of the 6-cores when OCed. If you're doing a lot of video encoding or other CPU intensive apps, you may want to opt for the i7-2600K as you'll gain hyperthreading (useless if you're just gaming - stick with the i5-2500k in that case).

It'll also be ~$100 cheaper.
