Yes, I would recommend it for conversion, editing, and gaming. It can handle all of those, no problem. Overclocking is very easy, and it's much safer than a lot of beginners think. When you're ready to overclock, just ask around here, and you'll get plenty of responses. You can read this guide, to get your feet a little wet, before you consider overclocking:

...which you should, because those processors are just made for overclocking.
