1.5v and 5.0 Ghz = 192 watts
1.3 and 3.3 Ghz = 95 watts

I'd want to start folding and I have got a bit of video editing to do...

MAIN use is gaming...saying that my current set up seems to still do games on quite high settings fine


Unless I would never see any difference in the two? I would go with the I7...my first choice was a I7 970...then realised thats just a waste of money lol for me anyway

Get the i5 2500k (in my opinion). You won't see a difference between the 2600k and 2500k in games. Someone else can speak on folding but I don't think you should design your computer around folding (that is a secondary function). The 2500k will still video edit/encode very fluidly so unless you are doing it more than 10-15% of the time, I wouldn't spend the extra $100...
