probably either 2500k or 3570k.


2500k is 2nd generation i5 :- http://ark.intel.com...-up-to-3_70-GHz

3570k is 3rd generation i5 :- http://ark.intel.com...-up-to-3_80-GHz


after 3rd gen i believe they changed the socket to 1150.


passmark benchmark scores for 6600k, 3570k, 2500k to give you an idea on how each cpu's performance compares.

first number is the generation of the cpu's and the k means they are all unlocked and can be easily overclocked.




should of added the i7's too seeing how your comparing a newer socket cpu to an older socket cpu.


i7 2600k :- http://ark.intel.com...-up-to-3_80-GHz

i7 3770k :- http://ark.intel.com...-up-to-3_90-GHz


passmark scores.

http://www.cpubenchm... @ 3.50GHz&id=2


comparison of 3770k vs 6600k :- http://cpu.userbench...600K/1317vs3503

in general the rule is newer is always faster than older generations core for core.
