Hello all I am building my first gaming/video editing machine and I am hung up on the cpu to choose. I have always used amd cpus, I want to be able to game and edit videos using programs such as sony vegas, after effects and the like. The two cpu's that I am looking at are the intel i5-3570k and the AMD FX-8350. Every review I have seen has put the i5 ahead of the amd chip for gaming but what about video editing would the 8 core amd beat the i5-3570k in this area, and how much of a loss would I be facing on the gaming side if I chose the amd? Any opinions or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
