I'm in the process of building a new desktop rig that will partially be targetted at both video editing and gaming.
I'm unsure as to whether an i7-2600k is worth the extra money. My question however is this:
What hardware does the video preview window in Sony Vegas (10) use predominantly? CPU? RAM? GPU even?
This will sway my decision between he i7 or the i5. I don't care about final export rendering time.
