hey guys, ive recently decided to build a computer and been looking at building it soon but have become stumped on price and descision. I'm wanting to record videos off my ps3 with my recent purchace of my ELGATO, record gaming off my pc with fraps and also want to edit it. I will be using programs such as: -Sony Vegas -Affter Effects -Cinema 4D -Photoshop -and more
I'll be recording alot of ps3 and be playing PC games like: -Battlefield 3 -Starcraft 2 -Borderlands 2 -and more like crysis and far cry later on
And thats the problem im unsure to go with a i7 3770k or a i5 3570k with my bugest of about $1150 i will have to downgrade on my graphics card this is the build so far.
CASE - Thermaltake V4 Black Edition Mid Tower Case USB3.0 - $75 POWER SUPPLY - Thermaltake 500w comes w/case CPU - intel core i5 3570k - $236 FAN - intel stock GRAPHICS - Gigabyte GTX660ti OC 2Gb - $339 SSD - Secondhand corsair force 3 - $50 HARD DRIVE - 1T seagate barracuda - $69 MOBO - Asrock extreme 4 - $144 MEMORY - 2 x 4gb sticks 1333 kingston - $52 DISK DRIVE - What ever - $20 NETWORK - What ever - $20 MOUSE + KEY BOARD - $29 MONITOR - $50
I would like to play ultra settings on most games i will later get better cooling and OC my cpu. So would a i5 3570k be good for rendering or pay more and get a i7 3770k and if so what do i downgrade?

Have you used this tool for prices? http://pcpartpicker.com/ The thermaltake PSU with the case is crap and should be avoided.
I would go with the I7 as photo shop and some of the other software can take advantage of HT.
