It looks good, though you might get more performance in games with an intel build. Some of the E3 xeons perform nearly as well as the 4770k including hyperthreading while having a similar price to your Fx9370.

Yeah, i have heard that i7 is better for gaming multitasking etc, would say i would notice a HUGE difference going with intel instead of amd?

It would depend a little on the game but it would never be huge, maybe 5-10% on average better performance in games (I7 vs 9370). On other tasks it REALLY depends on the task. The 9370 is by no means a slouch, but there are just some tasks that each companys CPU's do better at, with Intel generally wining at more of them.

So with intel, how do these specs look?

MEMORY: 16GB (8GBx2) DDR3/1866MHz
MOTHERBOARD: GIGABYTE Z97-D3H ATX w/ Realtek GbLAN, 2 PCIe x16, 2 PCIe x1, 3 PCI, 6x SATA 6Gb/s

that should perform much better than your 9370/260x combo, While having plenty of threading for your heavy editing tasks etc.
Looks good
