More about first build advice
  1. What is the total price that build above costs?

    If you are gaming only, the processor is overkill. Only BF3 currently utilizes HT, but not by much. Get an i5-3570k for $130(?) less. Make sure that Vengeance RAM is low profile, or get generic low profile RAM like the Crucial Ballistix sport 2x4GB 1333 MHz. With the $ you saved switching over to the i6-3570k, get a Radeon 7850. That PSU is a low quality Corsair PSU. Get an XFX 550W since you now have some extra $.

    its not only gaiming, wants to edit HD videos 2-10 min, and do some multitasking : ).
  3. I do that fine on my i5-2500k. Unless the videos are huge files, my suggestions will be just fine.

    okay :). so when do i need to upgrade to a i7, you know, when does your PC needs it?. + Sandy vs IVY, and AMD vs Intel ?
  5. When you do something very CPU intensive like editing huge files.
    Sandy: runs a bit cooler
    Ivy: Better at the same clock and temps aren't too hot unless you take it to the max.\

    AMD: Better for rendering.
    Intel: Better for gaming/editing.
