I am trying to decide between a 4770 and a 4820, the 4930 is still out of budget. I will be editing DSLR footage varying in length from 2-20 min. that will be in the form of instructional videos for a subscription-based website. I will want to put a common animated graphic intro on each one, but don't forsee a lot of heavy editing but as it will likely be hundreds of videos faster will definately be better.
Looking at a CM storm trooper case
650ti boost 2g video card
Corsair 750 80+ gold psu
256 Samsung 840pro C drive
2-3 WD 1tb black HD
either Asus Z87 pro or Asus P9X79 pro motherboard
All suggestions are welcome.
That's a no-brainer, go with the 4820k!
x79 is stronger than z87, plus with a higher TDP (130 watts for 4820k and 84 watts for the 4770, and both cpus are 22nm designs) the 4820k will most likely out gun the 4770 on a long, grinding render.
