So it's been about a year since I last upgraded my PC [from a 560 ti to a 680], and I have a decent amount of money set aside for doing so. Still, from what I can tell, it seems like newer processors are only incrementally better than than my 2500k, but I figure I could be wrong.

Is it worth upgrading yet, or nah?

Your only real option for an upgrade worth making is to a 3770k, and that isn't worth doing unless you see it on sale for under $200 and you have the cash to burn. The 2500k isn't holding me back in most titles at this point. I personally don't plan on upgrading for another year or two, unless it starts performing poorly faster than I think it will.

Not really. There's maybe, what, 20% difference or so between i5 2500k and the newest i5?
