Either way is fine for gaming. It's not that 6 cores gives you a disadvantage, it just more often doesn't give you an advantage, but it does not negatively impact performance at the same clock speed. And x6 usually OCs further. Since you want video editing power, I would definitely take the 1090T over the 955. The 1090T might be lagging in a lot of places vs the newer generation chip (2500k), but it can hold its ground very well in video editing and often outperforms the 2500k in tests due to having 6 true cores/threads - even ousts the 2600k due to the ineffectiveness of HyperThreading.

Remember, there are motherboards out there with AM3+ compatibility. AM3+ will have 8 true(ish) cores, a massive advantage over LGA1155 Sandy Bridge for video editing. You can plop a 1090T in that AM3+ board and then get an 8 core FX Series processor later. There is no doubt that the 8 core FX series will oust both the 2500k and 2600k due to having more "cores"/threads, in multithreaded-optimized apps such as video editing. Whereas with LGA1155, until Ivy Bridge is out later, the 2500k and 2600k are the end of the line.

Benches.

Focus on the encoding tests and the gaming benches at the bottom.

I7-2600k is the way to go.

Something like this, are you saying? Because if do end up getting an AMD, then I might as well grab an AM3+.

That exactly. There are some ASRock boards out there with AM3+ support too, including the high end 890FX-Deluxe5 and low end boards too such as the 880G PRO3 and 890GX PRO3.

Oh and Andandtech benches... over-suggested and unreliable. They don't even provide info on the test systems used i.e. what RAM on what mobo etc. I would take their benches with a massive grain of salt.
