Hello Everyone,

About 2-3 weeks ago I asked for help to build a gaming pc which was for rarely doing video editing. I don't want to mention everything again, so if you would like to see more details check out my past threads.

Thing is I couldn't buy this computer due to events which limited my budget and now checking over the parts I saw the 8350 is a 4 GHz processor, and I can't seem to figure out why do people prefer to buy something like an Intel Intel Core i7-2600K which is 3.4 GHz. Is it due to higher overclocked speeds?

I saw performance comparison doing a quick Google search and the 2600k won all aspects of performance.

Should I reconsider my build?

GHZ and number of cores aren't always everything! IPC (Instructions Per Clock) is why the core i7-2600K is faster than the FX-8350.

What are the system components right now? If you are gaming the core i5-3570K is currently the best choice.

Thanks for specifying that, I still have A LOT to learn.
The following is the build I'm planning on buying, http://pcpartpicker.com/p/EFz0
I have to add windows to that, and a Blu Ray burner.
