Default i7-4770k vs i7-4770

Is the only difference the ability to overclock or are there more benefits to buying the K over the original one.

They're the same thing. The K is unlocked for overclocking.

i7 4770 locked
ARK | Intel® Core

i7 4770K unlocked
ARK | Intel® Core

Personally I'd steer clear of the new tech for 6 months or so. Let others test drive it and see if there's any problems with it.

Thanks.. It says its .1 GHz difference but I don't think it matters for rendering. To be honest this might sound stupid but I'm nervous to overclock because I need my next build to last for 5 years (which is far fetched) and I'm afraid I'll burn it down

I'm thinking about getting this rig for video editing. Your opinions?

Can't use the link you posted. Dead ends in to a can't be found page.

CPU: Intel i7-4770 3.50 GHz 8MB Intel Smart Cache LGA1150
CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo Gaming Cooling Fan
HDD: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 7200 RPM HDD
MEMORY: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory (Corsair Vengeance)
MOTHERBOARD: MSI Z87-G45 Gaming Intel Z87 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ IRST, Military Class 4, OC Genie II, 7.1 Sound Blaster Cinema Audio, Killer E2205 GbLAN, 3 Gen3 PCIe x16 & 4 PCIe x1
SOUND: HIGH DEFINITION ON-BOARD 7.1 AUDIO
VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB EVGA Superclocked

I'm looking to buy this tomorrow and had some questions.

How do you think this will perform as a video editing rig and what do you think of the hardware selections? Any input would be great. I'm hoping to get 4 years out of this PC with minimal problems. I will be playing some games but it's mainly for video editing. I don't want to overclock because I don't see the need for it so getting the i7-4770K instead would be a waste right?

I would go 16 gigs on the ram. Video editing takes up some ram. Corsair has some killer deals on 16 gig kits.
Other than that looks ok.
