first of great choice for a build. lol I actually posted to get 2nd opinions on my build that contains many of the same components.
My First Performance Build, Will this Work? You tell me.
I really can't speak on most of your build. I actually went with ASUS P8P67 PRO LGA 1155 Intel P67 for the MOBO. It has most of the same feature minus a few minute one. and I also Opted for the 8gb ram. so almost a mirror image.
Anyways the 2500(k) vs 2600k
I looked these up pretty pretty in-depth and I'm in no way a tech guy, but genereally here's what I found.
would be better if gaming is your main usage. Has been OC'ed @4ghz and more, but lacks HT, Which doesn't make or break it, but it's something to think about,
2600(k) From what I've read most aticles seem to say it would be the better all around processor of the two, but you would only notice the extra horse power when multi tasking. So if Gaming if your main usage you might want to skip on the 2600k and get a better GPU.
As far as video editing/encoding I heard the 2600k is the way to go. I think I read they actually have a gpu in them, as crazy as that sounds, so they will be better at editing. If someone know what that's about please elaborate.
