There are 2 differances between the 2600 & 2600K the ist is the K model as an unlocked multiplier for overclocking which you don't want and the second is the K model has the better 3000 onboard graphics and I assume as you are gaming you are getting a dedicated graphics card and don't need this either.

They are the same except one is overclockable (K) and the other isn't.

Also the K has better integrated graphics, which you don't use anyways.

What is your 6GB ram configuration? It's not 3 sticks is it? Cause that will hurt performance.

I recommend getting a dual channel kit for RAM its very cheap at the moment and you want 2 sticks the same.
