Anything wrong with 2600K for photo and video editing?

I haven't upgraded my PC in 4 years. I've purchased nearly all of the components except the CPU.

Initially I wanted to get the latest and greatest, i.e. i7-3770.

But the 2600K is a lot less and it's just as fast and OCs better. Anything wrong with the 2600K?

I've already ordered Asrock Z77 Expreme4.

  1. Nothing wrong with it, in fact it's more than what most people need ;)
  2. I couldn't remember what things you miss out on with Sandy Bridge CPU. I think this is a more or less compete list of IB advantages:

    (1) PCI 3 support; by the time this becomes an issue I'll upgrade.
    (2) uses less power at stock speed. not an issue in desktop PC.
    (3) Better integrated graphics. Don't care; I'll have a discrete GPU.
    (4) Better security. Can't get excited about this.

    Did I miss anything?
  3. Enjoy!
