I think offhand that you'll get a more then 20% increase in performance with hyperthreading, especially with something repetitive such as video encoding. never mind that you and overclock the hell out of them anyways and beat the X6 more then likely. ( 2600k > x6 > 2500k ?) I'd hit up an X6 over a 2500k for rendering purposes. ( I think )

I'd highly recommend a small easy overclock if you're rendering video though, it'll definitely reduce rendering times.
