That gigabyte one is fine. There's no point is spending more than that since you said it won't be for games. You could go cheaper than that even, as you will most likely only need 1 PCIe 2.0 slot.

This one looks good for you it gives you the option to add a second video card if you need it for your video conversions. There are more important components to be concerned about for what you want to do like the cpu , the memory , video card and the power supply. What are you looking at for those components?

GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD4 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard $199.99 and a $20 rebate makind it the same price as the other one , GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3P LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
The more you pay for a motherboard the more features that are included and the better the board , since this one is on sale you can get a better board for the same price. What would your budget be and what are your other components.

If you go with the one that Ilisted that is on sale it would also be good for gaming , but it's like I said before the other components are what will give you the performance to do what you want with your Pc. The 2500k is a great cpu for both gaming and video processing , you will most likely want 16gb of ram and a GTX 570 video card. So this is what you could get ;

You can go with that one if you want but it is $20 more than the Gigabyte. Do you have a budget.

Both of those mobos are very similar. The only difference I see is that the ASUS has 1 more PCIe slot, but only at 4x. The Gigabyte has a slightly higher max memory freq. but I doubt you're looking to exceed 2000mhz on your RAM anyway.
