i5 2500K & Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3, Intel Z68

Or

i5 3570K & Asus P8Z77-M PRO

Mainly for gaming with a little video editing and googling, single gpu until 2 years time, too last a good 4 years and a slight over clock to 4ghz later on down the line.

for less overclocking i'd go with 3570k.. 3570k has more powerful overclocking potential 4ghz = 4.5ghz of 2500k

Sorry you mean the 2500k has more oc potential as it cools better?? Or do you mean to get a 3570 to act as a 2500 at 4.5ghz i would only need to clock it too 4.0ghz??

oh yeah, sorry i wrote it mistakenly, sure 3570k 4.0ghz act as a 4.5ghz or 4.4ghz 2500k.
