Well, since you asked, i use CS6 Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas and Yes I do also render... With yes, lots of layers....

We dont have intel promos here ever since in the philippines, maybe they had but i wasnt aware of any... By the way the price diff between a non K and a K is about 25USD,

True...

i only watch movies and editing photos thats all, thats why i dont do overcloking hahah

Then why do you even need an i7? Sell your 2600k and buy a cheap i3.

nvm, you use sony vegas.

just keep your 2600, it's a 10% speed difference at most, you really wont notice any difference.

theres nothing wrong with wanting a 3770 k or non-k.

its such a beast cpu. i cant imagine editing video with anything less than this. i mean granted 2700k is practically the same thing just sandy bridge. i mean its just that teeny tiny bit better and its got that newer cpu smell tongue.gif

although it would be soo cool to have the new six-core 2011 socket cpus rolleyes.gif

I'd still go for the K. If you're in the States, microcenter is pretty much giving away 3770ks for 200 bucks. Hell I'd get 5 of those and OC like mad. Anyway, my dreams aside, get a K, push a button like the above poster said, and see your performance fly. smile.gif
