Or have I missed something completely????????
Refer to this thread. Disregard the first few pages, because they're filled with fanboyism and buyer's remorse, but they do teach a lot about the differences between the two, so come to think of it, read it all.
If you're not getting a Z68 (I'm not really a video editing professional and therefore can't comment on specific progs/apps and how they utilize the built-in GPU, which can run in tandem with your standalone GPU, a Z68 feature) then you might as well just get an Intell i7 2600 (minus the K).
