Score 7.0/10
Good points:
You have a nice Mother board, With a nice GPU, and you have the choice of this or the i5 2500K.
Why I suggest you buy this is : no onchip graphics, a small speed boost.
Most GPU's will outperform onchip graphics handily,
Bad points:
As above, But, If you have the right Motherboard, but no GPU,
the 2500k may be a better choice, allowing you to use the chip based graphics,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Awesome CPU, just in a different class to other/older CPUs out there. This I5 2550k does not have the onboard Intel gfx that the 2500k has, hence the reason for my purchase, I wanted a slightly cooler CPU for overclocking, not having onboard gfx makes this CPU slightly cooler. I have this CPU paired with a Gigabyte Z77-D3H motherboard + a Arctic Freezer 2 Pro, overclocked to 4.5ghz 1.3v 38c idle 56-58c running games. This would probably go higher with a more expensive cooler, but I am more than happy with 4.5ghz.
Bad points:
No real bad points except, for some, the lack of onboard graphics may not appeal to those that want or are happy with onboard graphics. Most users buying this CPU would probably have a decent discreet graphic card, so this is no bad thing, and certainly nothing against this great CPU.
