Yeah I'm gonna buy an gaming computer with a i5 2320k. And my question...
Is really the Nvidia i5 2500k much better?
The graphics card is the GTX 580. Games I am gonna play: BF3, BC2 Skyrim and Diablo 3.
Thanks for the help! :)

Ummmm.... I am assuming you mean INTEL i5 2500k. As pointed out there is no such thing as an i5 2320k.

The "k" means that the i5 2500k has an unlocked multiplier that will allow you to overclock the CPU for better performance. BF3 and Skyrim are examples of games that loves high performance CPUs, the higher the performance, the more frame rates you will get. Since Diablo 3 is likely to be a CPU bound game (like StarCraft 2), a more powerful CPU will also give you better performance.

As a side note, for game where the combination of the i5-2500k and GTX 580 can give you more than 60FPS, your monitor will limit the FPS to 60 unless you have a 120Hz monitor which is capable of displaying up to 120FPS.
