Hmm okay. so if th i5-2500k isn't going to be that much of an upgrade how about this cpu. for an extra $100...http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115070
Also, how much if any would a cheap MB effect performance, futhermore will this cpu (i7-2600K) be good for the extra $100 as a gamer, or will this be an overkill? I don't overclock, Have no idea how to do it and will most likley end up frying my cpu.
From what i can tell on the CPU charts there is not much differance
