Default Re: Is a i7-2600K that much better then a i5-2500K

For gaming, there is very little to gain from the 100MHz and hyperthreading. For video compression and other highly threaded workload, the 2600k gives a boost. Probably not worth the $100 though.

Both overclock very well.
As the universe is curved, there cannot be a straight answer...
