What is the purpose of your rig? Gaming? Editing? Are you also planning to OC?

You don't need i7 for gaming but if you really want to. Go with the i7-4770 / k version if you are planning to OC. Oh wait what mobo do you have?

Okay, in that case grab the i7-4770k and find 1150 socket mobo. YOU STILL DIDN'T ANSWER TO WHETHER YOU'RE OCing ! :o

No, 4820k is HIGHLY made more intense video editing. You honestly don't even need an i7 for gaming. Anyways the 4820k also uses 2011 socket, which it is not easy to come by.
