I want to upgrade my CPU from i5 3450 to either i7 3770 or i7 4770.

I am absolutely not gonna play games on this PC. I want it for 3D (3d MAX) and FULLHD video rendering (After Effects and Premiere). I have a GTX 650 Ti 1 Gb, so i don't care for integrated graphics. I am also not interested in OC.

How big is the difference in performance is from i5 3450 to i7 3770 to i7 4770s?

Also, i would like to know about temperature levels of Haswell CPU (if someone has one, don't read and tell).

This is awkward because i just posted 'i7 3770K vs. i7 3770' query and now this, but i got to figure out what best i can buy out there, just wanna make sure.

Thank you.

Get the 3770. The 4770s is a version that cuts back on power (Electric and raw power), not to mention that you'll need to buy a new mobo for the 4770s.

Since you own a i5 3450, just reuse that socket and get a i7-3770k, i7-3770k vs. 4770k is not that big a difference and depending on your mtoherboard it is not worth it to dish out another $250 ish for a slighty better CPU + different socket motherboard. Especially since this is for video editing.

Well, lesser power is a plus for me. 4770s scores higher in benchmark on sites i went to. All i am worried about is that it is really new product and there might be 'yet to be discovered' bugs and issues we might not be hearing in media.

3770 should be a clear winner as you already have the motherboard but im not sure you are going to get the results you are expecting vs what you already have. it will be better but not night and day but if you can sell the other cpu (to me jk) it will be worthwhile, switching to all new doesn't seem worth it

I know that but, i am not getting full resolution previews even at 20fps (FULLHD), maybe 4GB (1333Mhz) RAM is the problem, which also i am upgrading to 8 or 16 GB (1600MHz). I upgraded my abysmal GT210 to GTX 650 Ti in hope to get realtime preview but it didn't worked. What should i do to get realtime previews and MOST possible rendering fps under the price of i7 4770. Really, some help will be really appreciated.

And of course i am selling the 3450, get some nice exchange offer.

All benchmarks relating to video encoding or 3D rendering indicate that either i7 3770 and 4770 are 'significantly' faster than fastest i5 IB (3570K) CPU. Considering mine is not even close to being fast enough as 3470, i think it might be really worthwhile to upgrade to either one of the i7 i am interested in.

Any comments, please.

i5 is not capable of doing the things you want nearly as fast or well as the i7s, just get the i7-3770k, good enough for what you want to get done. no need to upgrade to a haswell chip that emits more heat for a minor improvement.
