From the BF 4 forums, people have just as bad performance with AMD FX 8350's as people do with intels. I have no experience on video editing to share with you.

Nope, the AMD CPU will not make a big difference on BF4 (the AMD GPU's will but thats a different story). Especially since you want to do video editing, the i7 will be great for what you need. Id highly recommend it.

I usually say that if you are not getting an i7, do not get an intel because an fx 6300 or higher will kill all the intel i3 and i5 cpus. Both processor are great and you can't go wrong with either one. If you have the money to spend, get the i7 but the 8350 is just as good and has 8 cores and has a base of 4.0 GHz which is amazing!

That is false. I have the 8350 and it does by no means beat the i5 in most games. It's still a great processor, but its not necessarily better than the i5.

If you're doing video editing, go with the i7. It'll be better in the long run anyways. You can sli the graphics card later.

NOTE: depending on your monitor, you could just get the 2GB version.

I am going to get a i7 and i think i am still gonna get a 770 4gb so i dont need to improve a little longer. I will get it sli just so i dont need to upgrade later. Right now I am using 1 1920x1080 but I am going to get a 2nd monitor sometime in the future. If you dont mind answering do you know of a good motherboard for a i7 with 4 ram slots and sli around the $100 to $110 range and what Power Supply is needed to support that.
Thanks
