The Core i7 2600k would be a waste of money, unless he uses many multi-threaded programs.

And the AsRock board I suggested is equivalent to the Asus P8P67 Pro, feature-wise.

The 2600k and the 2500k were #1 and #2 when I was looking at them on newegg. I stared at them together for awhile before deciding on the 2500k.

Gaming mostly. That's why I decided on the 2500. Couldn't justify the cost of the 2600.

oh and video conversion whenever I want to load some vids on my zune.

Good choice. You're not going to see much of a benefit (if any at all) from getting a Core i7 2600k instead of a Core i5 2500k. You'll be much better off spending that money on a better GPU.

Thanks for everyone's advice. A little oversight on my part but my optical drive is IDE and the new MB doesn't have an IDE connection so I'll have to go find an SATA drive in town here somewhere.

Are you trying to install the OS? Just use a USB flashdrive.
