Yeah, that's the boat I found myself in two weeks ago. MicroCenter had the 2600K for $279 and were offering another $50 off if you bought it with a motherboard. My "old" Core i7 920 rig is now my backup computer.

Here's my new main rig, specs for both computers in "My System Specs":
That looks really good. And the SSD at 7.9 is excellent. I cannot get any of mine to show better than 7.8 - even on a 6Gb port. Not that it matters, but it is interesting.

Just as a science experiment...
You might try two things, leave the PC idle for a few hours or leave on the LogIn screen a few hours. I think that lets TRIM do its job, not sure. My M4 got a 7.7 WEI on a new install but after doing the above steps went to 7.9. some Intell SSDs won't go more than 7.8 however.

Good idea. But I think you have a 128GB model and I have the 64MB. That may make a difference too.

One of each, it was the 64GB which went up in WEI, I think size makes a difference only for memory size.

The read speeds are the same for the 64GB and the 128GB, the write speeds are the only difference. Write speed for the 64 is 95, the 126 is 175.

I'm between classes tonight and down in the Cleveland State computer lab (one of them, anyway.) Lack of Administrator privileges keep me from updating the score, but check out the big bad gaming machine I'm on at the moment:
