Just ordered a 4930k myself... I do video editing/rendering almost every day and also do some streaming and audio production. When are you planning on making this purchase? I get my 4930k on Thursday so if you have any questions about specific things or benchmarks I can help you with that... But IMO you should go with the 4930k if you can scrounge up the coin, just for the mere fact that you are doing video encoding multiple times a week.

your current CPU should be up to the task the only possible problems is weather your mobo has CFX and SLI.

Haswell-E does sound magical. I'll have to look into it.
