More about want gaming video conversion
  1. 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.
  2. If you're going with the i7 2600 build I would suggest going with a P67 based motherboard. Using the link provided as reference.
  3. i agree the p67 is a great mobo for the 2600
  4. but the budget is a problem ..instead of investing it in motherboard and cpu cooler..i invested in processor ..

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