  1. Gaming - i5

    Editing - i7

    Best choice: i5 with the 7970.
  2. both good choices

    but if you need the hyperthreading for heavy editing

    then 3770k and overclock the 7950
  3. 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 $
