I'd like to upgrade my processor and have heard that the i5 2500k is pretty good and am wondering if AMD competitor to it is any good?

^ Yep

FX-81XX/83XX are the closest competitors to the Intel Core i5's (SB & IB)

Err...I will say that the 965 BE is only 25% worse, clock for clock, than the 2500k. However, the 965 is half the price of the 2500k.
