Are you looking to save money? Have money to burn? Gaming or doing anything that is well-threaded like video transcoding? That info will help.

Budget is around 1400 dollars, and it will be used for gaimng 2-10 min HD editing, and some multitasking (y)
:)  so. what do you think?.

I'd drop to a 3570 (don't need K since you're not getting a cooler for overclocking) and 8GB of ram and use the savings to get an nVidia 670 GTX or Radeon 7970 (if you are beholden to AMD).

Then when will i need a i7?. can i5 handle 2 -10 min HD editing fast and good ? :)

If you are more interested in video editing then stick with the i7 because video editing and stuff uses more cores right? I'm getting a 7870 gpu and it sounds wonderful. My unprofessional opinion is to stick with what you have. Except, get an aftermarket cpu cooler. The hyper 212+ is great and is only like 30 dollars. Also, is a 500gb hdd enough space for video stuff? I really don't know but if it sounds like it might not be enough then you may want to invest in another 1tb drive or something.

Only get an aftermarket cooler if you plan to overclock the CPU.

Also, is the few seconds or minutes you shave off a 10 minute video worth $100? If it is, then get the 3770K. If not, and you're not going to overclock, get a 3570 (non-K) and save a little more.

but what if im not happy with the i5. i cant just buy a i7 just like that you know :/ ?

If $100 is irrelevant, then go i7 :)  It may not help a ton but it won't hurt anything.
