If you are going for a gaming processor then go with the i5 of either Sandy Bridge or the new Ivy Bridge. This processor did not increase my gaming performance but it did increase overall computer performance. For the money I think you should get the i5 and save that $100 to spend on an SSD or a better graphics card because a graphics card will make a HUGE difference for $100 than a processor. However, if you are going to use your computer for Compressing, video encoding, audio encoding, video editing, or anything else that is VERY CPU INTENSIVE, then this processor will handle it perfectly.

This CPU provides exceptional performance in overclocking and stability. Easily OC's to 4.9 GHZ on merely 1.42 volts, using 16GB of ram with a thermalright silver arrow fan. This CPU has the horsepower to push dual crossfire 6990's. No BSOD's of any kind have been experienced, even after Prime 95 torture tests. Highly recommended.

The 2700-series is an essential part of a professional photographer's workflow pipeline. The i5(2500) is just fine and can perform real time editing in Photoshop and Lightroom. Don't pay more if you're already in real time which is basically anything that is just 2 or 3-dimensional and timeless: pictures, business cards, logos.

However, the i7(2700) has hyper-treading and is better suited when working with heavy 4-dimensional projects with the 4th dimension being time as in HD video editing and commercial database recordings.

In such a heavy scenario, the CPU could be working 100% for hours if not 24/7 and that is where we separate the 2700 from the 2700K, they have the same performance but the 2700K has more tolerance for extreme drawn out loads. That is why you'll find the 2700K in Hollywood workstations like Apple Towers and HP Z-series rendering scenes for the next featured movie where just a few seconds of a movie takes days if not weeks to render.

Wait you say... Apple Towers and HP Z-series workstations use Xeon cpu's not 2700K. Right and wrong. 2700's are actually handicapped Xeons. When Intel makes a cpu by etching billions of transistors onto a silicon wafer its inevitable that some are great CPU's and some junk CPU's. They get sorted out unto different bins. The most perfect CPU's are put in the Xeon bin and are shipped to companies who make computers for mission-critical businesses such as banks, government agencies, Hollywood, etc.

Most of the real estate in a CPU is dedicated to cache so lots of transistor faults are in the cache area. While a fault in a core part of a CPU requires the entire CPU be scrapped, Intel can still sell a CPU with a fault in the cache part by disabling it.

I purchased a 2700K and use it as the meat layer in my latest computer sandwich, between some Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3 and an Antec Kuehler 620 (the cooling portion connected to 2 stacked fans similar to the H80 setup) in an Antec 302 case with a few SilenX 120mm fans at different places in the case. Since the cooling is very silent and effective, I was able to overclock my 2700K to 4.9GHz with a reasonable 1.435v speed/voltage trade-off and very little noise produced by the fans. (One could probably push this one to 5.1 GHz with brute voltage force but it wasn't worth the trade-off for me).
The results are impressive. In the past, when running 18MPixel CR2 (RAW) to JPEG conversion on the notoriously slow but good DxO Optics Pro 7, I used to get 1 frame per minute throughput on an otherwise fast Intel Core2Duo laptop before (and one frame every 10-15 seconds with Lightroom 3). Now, with the 2700K and making use of its 8-thread hyper-thereaded architecture, I am getting one DxO-converted frame every 6 seconds (and one lightroom frame every 1-2 seconds) :-)! So this CPU, when confronted with the elements and pushed a bit, can deliver stunning performance.

Therefore I find this CPU (and the other i7's) a great match for computers built for photo and video editing, as the hyperthreading architecture really shows its best in such environments. 5 Stars.

If I had built the rig for gaming, I'd probably pick an i5 instead and put the extra money into the GPU, since most games are running single-threaded for the heavy part.

Of course, I had to push the setup even further by adding an AsusTek HD 6850 GPU to the mix (some of the best computing power values it seems, especially if you build a low-noise setup).

My last chip, the 2600k was having issues. It ran too hot (with watercooling), required too many volts, and was a tad unstable. It could have been kept, but I felt uncomfortale sticking with a chip that failed Prime95.

So I took a chance and ordered the 2700k hoping they binned 2600k's for 2700k or that the fab process had gotten a little better and would increase the tolerances on these chips. I was delighted to see, with minimal effort overclocking and no voltage tuning (outside auto) I was able to boot into 5.2 GHz. I'm now running at 5.1 GHZ with 4x4 16 Gig of RAM @1866 (very hard on the IMC controller) and is Prime95 stable. It was a risk, as I could have gotten a truly terrible replacement chip from the edge of the silicon wafer which would have meant stock speeds and not much more. So I'm thrilled I spent the extra money and how this turned out.
