Is it worth buying an i7 3770k with a hyper 212 cooler from an i5 2400 with stock cooler? I am going to be gaming and maybe some adobe premiere pro videos but videos won't be longer than like 6min.

When your priority becomes adobe then yes,until then, no. Gaming is fine on the 2400.

For short videos the it-3570k would be the better value. Unless you are doing huge batches of 6 minute videos (like at least 30) on a consistent basis, the i7-3770k would not be worth it.

^ +10 This plus a Hyper 212 EVO for some OC and it'll scream :)

Not sure where this is coming from... But yes you should! A Radeon HD 7870 or HD 7950 represent easily the best bang for buck you'll see.
