I can't decide between these two processors. I'll be using this build for casual gaming, for video editing, but nothing longer than half an hour in length and with minimal effects, maybe some light use of AfterEffects, some Photoshop - well Gimp actually - and a lot of internet use, streaming with Netflix etc. and playing HD Blu-Rays. (On Windows Or Ubuntu until I can get it working on OSX). I can get either of them but the 3770 is an extra £55. I've heard that Hyper-threading is useful for editing but not so much for gaming. Can anyone help me? Is the 3770 worth the extra cash?
