Gaming - i5

Editing - i7

Best choice: i5 with the 7970.

both good choices

but if you need the hyperthreading for heavy editing

then 3770k and overclock the 7950

i have the 7950 sapphire (950mhz) vapor-x and i7-3770k and it's running anything i put on it but, but i think for gaming only i5 with an 7970 is the best choice - but if you are planning on heavy cpu deamandig applications i'll prefer the 3770k.

with that in mind considering the relatively small difference between the 7950 and 7970 i thin 7970 is worth the extra $
