Best CPU for video editing?

I am looking for a CPU for a new build I am doing, and I am wondering which of these CPU'S will give better performance for: Video Editing ( After Effects ) 3D work and Animation ( Maya, 3Ds max) and some light gaming (starcraft 2 and tf2)

i7 2600k vs i7 3770 vs i5 3570k

I am a complete noob and would appreciate any help I can get

  1. the i7 3770 is by far the best choice.
    a review can be seen here:

    While we were impressed with the results found when testing with SolidWorks, we were blown away with what the Core i7-3770K delivered in Maya. Here it was 56% faster than the Core i7-2600K with 15.58fps, making it the fastest processor test. We are not quite sure why the Core i7-3770K performs so well in this test or how it was able to beat the Core i7-3960X.

    a i5-3570K would be sufficient:

    3770>2600k>3570k
    For video editing all you need is a strong CPU, the extra threads in the i7 series will help a lot in a much faster processing.
  3. Thanks a lot guys!
  4. if you can afford it, the i7 3930k hexa core would be even better.
