  1. Best answer
    It would definitely work; even if an i7 might be a little better if you're into serious editing.
    You can save money by not getting a K edition CPU, as that's for overclocking. Which would then mean
    you could cut out that CPU fan entirely as well, since you get a stock CPU along with Intel CPUs.
    This would in turn mean you have a little bit of money to go towards getting 16GB of RAM too; which
    is very nice if you multi-task a lot. An SSD is also an option; depending on how much you're willing to spend.
  2. Looks good, might consider 16GB instead of 8 of DRAM for the editing ;)
  3. You're going to need a higher amount of RAM for editing. Working with 8GB can slow down your PC during heavy editing. 8GB is fine for gaming, but 16GB is currently optimal for editing.
    Also, if you're going to get into heavy rendering, you should invest in an i7 CPU. i7-4790 would be good
