Well, if you switch to the 2500k, you'll probably only be able to do 3 core folding 24/7 if you still want to run the 2-3 other vm's and surf the web simultaneously. I'm not sure what the numbers would look like if you did that. Folding 3 cores on an 2500k vs 4 threads on 1100T probably pretty close. I guess you have to figure out if it would be worth the hassle of switching over. I personally would just keep the 1100T since the rig isn't used for gaming.
