i would say the 2600 and get a corsair h80 or h100 to overclock without any problems.

i see the 2600 as the best of both worlds its great with games and good for video conversion,

What about the 2600k Its a little more but its made for overclocking

Thats what im currently looking at.

The 2nd option will give you the best of both worlds imo.
As you said,you can always add components later.
