I'd say its worth it for only 8 pounds. The 2550k probably is binned better to get higher OC. It does lack an onboard gpu tho if you need it.

No dont get the 2550k it comes with extra 0.1ghz and its more money and it comes with no onboard gpu.

2500k is $330
2550K is $340.
BUT 2550k Combo'ed with a mobo discounts the cpu down to $320. Snag it?

its worth the extra money to me, esp because it's so little money difference. Because if you game you'll never use the onboard video. That may allow you to OC higher, maybe use less voltage from the CPU itself? I don't like to have extra stuff on my rig that I'll never use.
