indeed. it makes video conversion/editing a breeze.

hence why I didn't wait for sandy and went 970 back in December.

No-one's told me that the 970 bumped down from 750 to 595, so there's the equivalent, much room for improvement if say you'd want something more than a $50 GPU in there, which probably wont perform THAT much better to the Intel HD 3000.
You're not gonna get a decent over-clock from a $110 Z68 motherboard. Second, you lose some 20% performance from dropping HT on these programs. So, overall it'd be faster, but you'd have to deal with two rigs. Third, you forgot the coolers for the 2500K. Four, the 2500K is $225, not $205. That's $40 more you'd have to add. Also, I'm not really sure you'd want an integrated GPU for dealing with complex, high resolution encoding and 3D rendering. IGP=less available RAM, and less performance.

OK, lets settle this:

980X average OC: 5144MHz
990X average OC: 5630MHz

I rest my case.

Yeah, no. You're not gonna get that with air cooling. I doubt 5.6GHz is doable with water cooling, too.

Did the price increase? I remembered it at $199~205 last week.

And I'm pretty sure X264 encoding is purely CPU performance and less on GPU performance, until you play it back, and your player supports GPU decoding.

Underwater. And check out the avg. OC with the 2600K, 5.3Ghz. Also, the number of HWBot registered 2600K clocked sensibly appears to be skewing the result, lowering the average. =P

Not really, no. It could just be that more people are running extreme cooling on them. Also, the newer 970s OC higher than the 980X on average.

This is not a new business model for CPUs. When your top chip has been out long enough, the price/demand will drop. Then you release a chip 100MHz faster, for full price. People buy more of the replaced CPU at it's newly decreased price, and the people who don't know any better than buying the top-of-the-line pay top dollar for the new top model.

AMD and intel have been doing that forever.

Yes, the price is $225. Anyway, the main point:

Two 2500K rigs would be more expensive but would also give more performance. But you'd have to deal with two rigs. Your choice.

As for the 2600K vs. the 970, the 970 is a better choice.
