For best price use the FX-8150.
It will beat the i5-3450 in most games and is highly overclockable and unlockable.
The 2500k is best value but it is now hard to find.
The fx-8150 has 4 FP cores at higher performance than regular intels
and 8 integer cores.
Multithreaded games and havok with the right patch will take advantage.

LOL! Big statement there and you will not get any respectable hardware site to agree with you!
