Spot on. Excellent choice. More expensive than the i5. As good (but not better) in games. About 20% better performance in video editing. For my money it's worth it - I also do a lot of video editing (Adobe Premiere Pro).

I would recommend a 680 instead of a 580. Much better performance and runs cooler and quieter.

neither for pure video editing a 6 gore 12 thread would be best and a 670 or 680
if your set on a quad core then get the 2600k it overclocks better, just! but overall its cheaper.
as the extra pci bandwidth and quad channel mem support mean nothing for gaming and very little as far as video editing goes.
the only real step in the ivy range is the 3960x everything else is pointless when the sandy is cheaper and works just as well if not slightly better when oc'd

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY SPOT ON EXCELLENT CHOICE ?

By "excellent choice" I mean: excellent choice. Sorry if that wasn't clear :) 

I use the SB equivalent, (2700K) and it performs marvelously in video editing. Yes, a 3930K would be even better but it is much, much more expensive. If you're a pro or hardcore enthusiast, then go for the 3930K. If (as I gathered from your post) you want a balanced, all round powerful PC that performs very well in the areas you're interested in, without being overkill, the 3770K is an excellent choice.

WELL IM NOT A BIG VIDEO EDITOR IM JUST BUILDING THE RIG FOR GRAPHIC DESIGN AND A LIL BIT FOR VIDEO EDITING SO THE 3570K WOULDN'T BE GOOD FOR THE JOB ?

Yep, it would be very good. But the 3770K would be even better (for CPU intensive tasks like graphic design and video editing). The performance advantage would be about 20% in these types of apps, but zero performance advantage in games. It's essentially the buyer's decision whether the performance advantage is worth the money.

Yes, these are the types of apps where the i7 shows an advantage over the i5. It's up to you whether the degree of advantage is worth the price.

I MEAN THAT'S TRUE BUT ISN'T IVY BRIDGE SUPPOSE TO BE THE BEST THING SINCE YEAR BY YEAR THE SOFTWARE UPGRADE AND PLUS PCIE 3.0

OK I THINK IL GO WITH THE I7 3770K BUT WHICH VIDEO CARD WOULD GO BEST WITH IT NOW

Well, there are pros and cons of IB vs SB, but there's very little in it. IB runs slightly faster at a given clockspeed, but SB overclocks better.

For someone who already has SB, IB isn't worth it. Any performance advantage is so slight the it would almost certainly not be noticed.

But for a new build, I'd say IB if the price is the same, simply because it is the newer generation and it uses a bit less power.

PCIe 3.0 isn't relevant

For the video card, as I said before, I'd recommend the 680 over the 580

best cpu for gaming and video editing is i7 3770k 100% performance in both stuff gaming and editing..
The 3570k is similar to 3770k in gaming but not similar in editing this is due to let me show...
3770k has 100mhz more speed which is quite good for editing to draw instruction per second quicker beside 3770k has also another good feature that is hyperthreading this feature is really good for 3d work which that allows a
computer to have "virtual cores" for each of
its actual core. This allows the processor to
process multiple threads at the same time... 3770k has 2mb of more cache memory
www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/551?vs=552

here is the bench of 3770 vs 3930, in most bench i7 3770k beat 3930 so i would go with 3770k.. Even i5 3570k do better job.

Stop posting in caps. You shouldn't, the sandybridge i5, i7 and ivybridges too will outperform both of them.

Video editing/rendering, unless you take a GPU rendering route, is more about Power, Speed and Efficiency. If you cannot afford an i7 3930K, you would be happy with i7 3770K. I would recommend at least a 16 GB DDR3 for your video stuff. If you can afford, go for 32 GB (you won't regret it for video). Note that anything more than 8 GB is not necessary for games but you would need that for Video. Your Adobe loves Quadros in MPE. Many on this forum have suggested not to worry too much about GPU in video editing. Get a pretty fast GPU, eVGA superclocked GTX 680 (when available). If that is NOT enough, down the line, you may add a Quadro 4000 or 5000, if necessary. Good luck.

I may have been one of those people. I guess the reason we have said don't bother with GPU in video editing is that we have seen the crashes, the glitch infested output, and the overall low quality of GPU renders, compared with CPU rendering. At least that is my experience with using CUDA in Premiere Pro. On this basis I have advised many people to steer well clear of it for now. I do not know if this is a function of using consumer graphics cards instead of Quadro (though am prepared to entertain the possibility).

IF THAT WAS THE CASE THEN MAYBE I SHOULD GET A AMD 8120 OR 8150 AND THAT HAS 8 CORES THEN


Nothing wrong with an FX-Zambezi. They just run hot and are less efficient than the Sandys. There is no real magic in an Ivy at this time of transition over a Sandy, or even AMD in many cases.

Adobe CS6 and Vegas Pro11 are big on OpenCL, compute and GPU acceleration. There are questions concerning CS6 and MPE/CUDA on Windows, especially with OpenCL -- MACs, apparently, have full support.

Bright lines may be reforming between desktop gaming cards and workstation pro cards. The money saved from a 2500k/FX8120 (as opposed to Ivy or a 2600k) can readily be spent more efficiently elsewhere.

Because it simply comes down to whether you are going to purchase a gaming card or a workstation card. That, apparently, is the $$ about which we are talking .

Your performance in CS6 and Vegas is highly dependent upon it, certainly more so than your CPU. GPU editing and encoding can be 2X to 3X, and greater, more efficient than the CPU.

Lookee here . . .



In Vegas, I've seen benchies where it is even more apparent. Any AMD/Intel with something like the FirePro V5900 2GB will simply curb-stomp the fastest Ivy with a premium gaming card in CS6 and Vegas Pro 11.


edit: Here yah go . . .



From: Benchmarking Sony Vegas Pro 11 using GPU on FirePro / Quadro

Quote:
Vegas Pro 11 is designed to take advantage of GPU acceleration for video FX, transitions, compositing, pan/crop, track motion and encoding. The series of test discussed below used an AMD FX 8150 8-core processor, 3.6 GHz, 8GB RAM, running Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit. The benchmarks evaluated preview and rendering with OpenCL GPU acceleration . . . .



GPU compute clearly scales beyond any differences in processor performance.
