I purchased the 6800k two weeks ago just to find out that the new 7850k was coming out today. Newegg is going to let me return the 6800k if I want. Is the 7850k worth an extra $50 plus the 2 week or so down time? I am more concerned about everyday computing speed as aposed to better graphics rendering. What should I do?

Well the 6800K is FM2 socket while all the Kaveri chips are FM2+ socket. Sp if the motherboard is FM2+ then go with the 7850K which has better specs overall.
