^ Thats also an option. Really depends on what your priorities are for this rig.
If you're more focused on gaming go for the 2500K, it will still work fine with SV Pro and Adobe AE.
If you're more focused on the editing stick with the 2600K, as those two will see benefit from the hyper-threading.
What was your max budget for this? I'd be happy to do a build suggestion, and I'm sure others would be happy to as well.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
