  3. i5 3570k or i7 3770k for HD Encoding?

Of course the i7 would do faster HD encoding, but how much faster compare to the i5? Is it really worth an extra $140+ just to encode HD videos faster?

That's up to you to decide. If you only do it every now and then, I would say not really. If you had a dedicated youtube channel then the answer would obviously be different.

Not a huge amount... roughly 25% faster. This could be substantial though if you do a lot of it but a 3570 isn't exactly a slouch.

I wouldn't say it's worth it if you're just editing stuff for a hobby. It seems like the i7 parts have always been suited for professional grade work.

That's pretty good I guess. I'll just get the i7 since it's going to be worth it on the long run.

Thanks.
