      Hello -


      I'm thinking about upgrading my computer. These are my current specs:


      CPU: Q6600 OC'd at 3.00Ghz

      RAM: 8gb G.SKILL Ripjaws Series Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL   AND 4gb G.SKILL F3-10666CL9-2GBNQ

      Video Card: EVGA 01G-P3-1366-TR GeForce GTX 460 SE (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5


      I'm thinking of ugrading to the i7-2600k and getting rid of my 4gb of ram and adding 8gb of the ripjaws.


      Here are my questions:

      1. Is it worth upgrading?

      2. Is the i7-2600k the best for its cost in that price range?

      3. What motherboard should I purchase to accompany this cpu?

      4. Would this be good for editing h264 (DSLR footage) easily in After Effects and Premiere?


      Any tips or suggestions are welcome
