yes 2500k is better, however do not get the 590 its a uesless card. I would wait, as the new cards are just around the corner :)

Go for a cheaper build with the 2500k and upgrade to the i7-3770k later next year, but if you do serious 3d work or photoshop get the 3930k. But if you plan on getting that system I suggest selecting a better case. But what games are you going to play?
