Something that makes me laught is the "OMG LATEST INTEL KORE IXVI OWERPOWERED FRYTEK PROCESSOR I NEED IT DAMN" I don't clearly see why you would need a processor with a lot of cores. 4 cores with correct frequency, thanks to a cooler and good motherboard can do the job in terms of gaming. A Core I7, or if you want mo humongous calculating power, a 12-core Xeon is only cosmetic.

It really depends on the application. Certainly, there are a lot of games for which the video card is more important than CPU, but for things like fast compiles, raytracing scenes in 3D modeling programs, or emulating complicated systems like the Sega Saturn or Playstation 2, these are heavily CPU-dependent and require some serious brute force that a video card can't provide.

Pretty sure fast processors with 5 or more cores are better for video rendering and stuff like that.

Yes, this is true as well, especially for video compositing jobs that are heavy on special effects and filters.
