*Notice: Please for once I don't want any 100% references to a "gaming computer", I have asked questions like this before and I always get "gaming frame rate would be..." Types of answers. If you post would you please regard this as a video rendering Rig 1st THEN any insight on gamin framerate, cons/pros, etc. is gladly welcome/encouraged: Thank you!*

So anytime I ask about the i7-2600(or 2700)k processor I always hear great things and I think i'm going to get one of them. However, I hear great things in terms of Framerate and gaming stuff. My GPU is a 7970 BTW so I know it can run any game on ultra w/ enhancements mods just fine with an i7-2600k. But never on the Video Rendering side.

How does it preform for rendering Hd videos?
Would it be good for say a 5 minute 1080p Hd video on After Effects? or take like 2 hours?
How much better would it be if I had a 3930k? since it's six cores instead of 4?

Also how much Ram should I get for video rendering? I was planning on getting 8 but I hear people needing 16 or more? The 8 is the DDR-1866 or whatever not 1600, or 1366 whatever.

Please help, I'm trying to work around my $2050 budget including monitor, case, and everything and just balance everything accordingly.

You really would want an nvidia card, beacuse adobe programs take great advantage of CUDA. A gtx 580 would render 5-20x faster than an i7-2600k! Though i do not know if amd's APP tech is very incorporated in adobe's programs.

Wait... what? I know the AMD 7970 destroys the GTX580 graphics cards, especially since I wont be running Crossfire or SLI. Isn't the 580 a Graphics Card and the i7-2600k a CPU? I'm so confused by your post. "5-20x faster ->>than an<-- i7-2600k? Wait, you meant to say "in an"???? :??:

Actually in gpu rendering, it does not. Say with an i7-2600k and gtx 580 (gpu rendering off) Will render the video in 20 min, while an i7-2600k and gtx 580 (gpu rendering on) will render the video in 5 min.

So a 7970 wouldn't help at all? I figured Adobe would incorporate a leading GPU like AMD?

You can check in the settings of AE right now and see if it's there. You can also change your previews so they are set on open gl.

I would but I don't have AE on this laptop, I got to build my new computer before I install it. Could anybody else check it for me or is there a link to see if they support it.

All of the googling I did only showed nvidia cards :/  Though you can preview stuff with open gl faster I am not sure if you can render faster using gpu rendering.
