  1. what are you going to do with it. whats your budget.
  2. The 2600k is an unlocked cpu and the intergrated graphics is the HD3000 and that makes it better than the 2600 because the 2600 is not unlocked and the intergrated graphics is the HD2000. So for an additional $15 its worth getting the 2600k if that is what you need . A better value is to go for the 2500k because it is $100 cheaper but it does not have Hyper threading so you have to decide what you need the cpu for to end up with the right one for you.
  3. It is definitely worth going for the 2600k unless you are positive you are never going to overclock. The 2600k also has slightly better integrated graphics but if you already have a graphics card or are planning on getting one then the integrated graphics won't be useful.
  4. best bang for your buck would be the 2500k and overclock it to 4.4ghz to 4.6ghz

    there arent that many things that benefit from hyperthreading--so unless you plan to use any of the few things that do use hyperthreading then thats what i would go for rather than the more expensive 2600k
  5. What will you be doing with your PC?
  6. If you are thinking of getting the i7 2600K vs the 2600 go for the 2600K. For $15.00 more it's a better buy cause of it's unlocked multipliers. If your getting this just for gaming then the i5 2500K is the better buy.
  7. 2600-4 cores 8thread
    2500-4 cores 4threads
    not going to over clock, ever, get the non K"

    For Performance & reliability go with 2600k, for budget and mainstream use go with I5 -2500k it is best for gaming, Media editing and it has same integrated graphics same as I7-2600.

    So go with 2600k or 2500k nothing else is unsatisfactory.

    :sol: :sol: :sol:

    :hello: Ps. Overall performance and worth of cost is 2600k go with it. :hello:
  9. If you are using programs that will use hyperthreading then go for the 2600k if you are just gaming then get the 2500k, the 2600k is no better then the 2500k for gaming.
