Hello,

What will perform the best for gaming AND video editing?

fx 8320+asus m5a99fx pro r2.0 (will oc to atleast 4ghz)
i5 3570k+msi z77a g43 10,- more

I will play these games: bf3, bf4, fallout nv, counter strike go, red orchestra 2/rising storm world of tanks and maybe some newer games such as crysis 3 and metro last light.
When video editing I will use: after effects, photoshop and cinema 4d.

If parts of haswell are cheaper the 14th maybe I'll go for a haswell based build instead of ivy.

Will a fx 8320 be much better when video editing?

The first build is solid. Though if the budget would fit, I would try to fit the FX-8350 in there for OC purposes.

I think the 8350 is overpriced, it costs 35,- more and I'm not going to oc it very much (4,5ghz max). And I'm also leaning towards amd because of the video editng editing, but I've never found a real world benchmark of the 8350 and i5 3570k when it comes down to video editing.

Well, I would still get the 8350 if you could as opposed to the 8320 if you can stretch your budget. And from what I've read/heard, the 83xx will be better for video editing than the 3570k.

And I doubt parts for haswell will be cheaper on the 14th. The starting price for the 4670k is already like at least $15 higher than the 3570k was at last years release.

Here are some benchmarks of some video editing tools and benchmarking softwares:











As you can see, Intel favors some softwares over AMD and the other way around. Basically, you should get to know, what softwares you will use and then determine wether AMD or Intel will do it for you.

Also mind that Haswell just got released, and Haswell offers a big boost of performance in productive apps, which makes it very attractive in your situation - I would say.

How about after effects, what I use most of the time?

the i5 4670k already dropped in price it's 215,- now (i5 3570k 200,-) so I don't think it will drop anymore soon. Haswell mobo's are also much more expensive, the first atx decent mobo I found was 110,- so I'm not going for haswell afterall. The 8350 is like I said not worth it(for me) because I want to oc it to only about 4.2ghz(4.5 max).

I know the fx 8320/50 are better then the i5 but again I don't know how much(in after effects).

Okay haswell is and will stay to expensive so unless the i5 3570k and mobo drop atleast 10-20,- I'm going for amd. Does anyone think I'm making a wrong decision? keep in mind I'm also video editing.

You're fine. :)  You gain maybe 5% performance difference by going the Haswell route on video editing and you'll pay about $50-100 more. No where near worth it.

In a recent review by Tomshardware, they claimed that the i7-4770k was 7% to 13% faster in todays threaded workloads compared to the i7-3770k.

But we aren't comparing it to the i7-3770K. It's between AMD vs Intel.
