This is also a great mobo,

a little too expensive... but thanks for the heads up on the 2600 and 2600k difference.

The difference is that it dosn't have integrated graphics, making it have a lower TDP (80w) It should run cooler and overclock the same as 2600.

If that MSI is out of your price range then yes, go with the asrock or asus. Both are decent boards.

AsRock? He linked a P8P67 Pro..

Question, not to thread jack.. How is the P8P67 Pro compared to the AsRock Extreme6?

Also, If video editing via Sony Vegas and rendering. Would the 2600k excel by leaps and bounds over the 2500k in terms of time it takes to render a video?

If you look at my SigRig, I built that for $700 excluding case & monitors and I'm loving it. It's running at 4.0GHz on the stock cooler right now w/ temps around 73C and folding well right now.

If you fold go for the i7, you should get more performance.

The differance is minimal. The Asus can SLI/CF at x8/x8 but the asrock also has a third pc-e slot that can run at x4 so it would be good for a phsyx card

asrock has 2 more sata ports making it have 10 total but the asus has 8 (which is still a lot)

The power phases are similar and will most likely overclock around the same. Extreme6 has 16+2 and asus has 12+2 but I think the asus usually have higher quality power phase's.

For the cpu's, the 2600k will help in editing and rendering if that's what your doing so it will be a worthy investment over the 2500k but either choice will be sufficient.
