3570k is slightly faster

though gets hotter when overclocked

its newer architecture than 2500k so for a new build would be the way i would go

No overclock to modest overclock -- 3570K
High Overclock with air cooling -- 2500K
High Overclock with custom water loop -- 3570K

Considering you are not rally a PRO, go with 3570K
