Default i7 950 vs. i5 2500k (same price)

Hello, tomorrow I'll be going to the closest Micro Center (long drive) and they have the i7 950 and i5 2500k both for $199. Also is the x6 1090t in the same league? It's also $199. I know the SB generally scores better in tests, but is it worth the wait? I'm interested in gaming FPS type games like Crysis as well as MMORPG's like WoW. BTW I've heard the i7 has triple channel memory, but does this mean I can't do 2x2gb and I'll have to use 3x2gb?
Thanks, Mack Daddy
