I was wondering if I got a Core i7 4770K from an AMD 6300 (FX) if there would be all that much of an increase in editing and stuff like that (I also game)? I know that I have to get a new motherboard and stuff but it's just a question.

More about : significant increase

the i7 is a lot better than the 6300, you'd certainly feel the difference especially in demanding games and rendering.

Yes it is better, but for half the price of the 4770k, you could go with an FX 8320 which would also be better for rendering and in games that take advantage of more cores like Crysis 3. Just wanted to throw that out there as an FYI. 4770k is definitely better, but not twice the price better.

What socket does the 8320 use?

Same as your FX 6300. What motherboard do you have?

MSI 760 GM P34 (or something like that)

Sadly, your board doesn't support the FX 8320. Still, you can go with an FX 8320 and a Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P for far less than what an i7 4770k alone will cost you.
