In a rush here so I'll get straight to the point:

I'm helping my friend build a Hackintosh, he's in the video editing business, and would like something that would speed up his video rendering and what not, would the i7 3770k be a good option?

Also, he will be paring up the i7 with an EVGA GTX 660ti 2GB. (Maybe a 560 ti)

Yes, the 3770k is a great option :)  However, if your friend uses Adobe programs, has he considered CUDA acceleration?

Sweet, I'll let him know!

Also, doesn't the 660ti offer CUDA acceleration?
