You're really missing the point. He has a 990 chipset, which means he can get bulldozer when it is out with all the features. Why would you compare the scaling of an old cpu vs a brand new one? Of course the old one is going to be slower.

Should he ditch his cpu and mobo and waste money on a 2500k+ and mobo, or stick with what he has, deal with the few fps less, and get just a cpu when bulldozer is out.

What you are looking at isn't a difference in scaling, it is just a faster cpu.
