Im looking for a good processor for video editing. I'm trying to edit 3-7 minute music videos in full 1080p HD without any lag or freezing during the editing process. I plan on Doing these for sites such as YouTube. I currently use Corel Video Studio Pro for editing. After doin research I see that I should go with the Intel i5 or i7. Can you give me any suggestions, or specs that are important

Wait till the new Intel Sandy Bridge Processors come out in January 2011.
Specifically the i7-2600K (a little over $300).

Pretty sure Corel supports heavy multi-threading (at least the newer versions), in which case a good i7 chip will serve you very very well. These have 8 effective threads (Or more with a 980x) with HyperThreading and come at good clock speeds with plenty of cache.

You'll want a good motherboard for that chip, quick decent capacity ram (i7's and their X58 boards support triple channel modes and DDR3 memory), and a good video card also helps, 'course.
