I buy computer for video editing. Did it worth it to pay extra and buy a gtx 780 or save money and buy gtx 770?

Those GPU's are for gaming. If all you are doing is video editing invest in a powerful AMD APU or an Intel CPU instead.. if you need a graphics card because your motherboard does not have an integrated chip just get something that supports HD video playback. Not that either of those cards wont do what you need. It's just money going to the wrong place.

GPUs do not influence video editing, if you have that kind of money get a i7 4770K or if you can't get a Xeon E3 1230 V3.

An i7 4790K would be your best bet. It's priced similarly to the i7 4770k. It's the haswell refresh that includes the fixes for high temperatures and voltage failures. The cpu is the most important part for rendering. Plus these GPUs are for gaming and you wouldn't notice a significant impact on heavy rendering performance. To notice any kind of jump you would have to get a GTX TITAN, which appears to be out of your budget. Or a Quadro or Tesla, which you might not want as you are asking about gaming cards.

Bottom line, if you're on an i5 or an FX 8350 and below, the hyperthreading in the i7 would give you much better performance than a GPU in rendering.

1. This is because the i5 doesn't have hyper-threading and i7 will encode %20 faster
2. The FX 8350 is a gaming oriented CPU and may beat the i7 in AMD optimized games but will be outclassed when it comes to production due to Intel's more efficient instruction set, and the way software tends to lean towards Intel technology.

Just one example of the i7 transcoding. It goes like this pretty much for the rest of the benchmarks.
