get the 2500+ OEM and if you can afford to get the an slk-800/900u with smartfan II you should be set for overclocking as well.

Yes it is quite a new one - I i didnt know about it either until about a month ago - anyway back to the original question - the XP2500 is the better bet as its cheaper and has the same potential as the lesser available XP2600. Especially if you can pick the manufacturing date and stepping.

I would say it depends on the pricing. If they're only a few dollars apart why not get the 2600? I wouldn't spend more than $10 extra for it, though.
