It's all relative though tex, I mean you're not running video encoding specific video cards, and it would also depend on the kind of footage/effects you would need to process.
It's just nice to see Intel actually think about video processing when making a CPU (but I wonder if there are going to be i7s for a Mac? Considering most editors, including myself, use Final Cut on Mac)
Edit - a quick check sees the newest Mac Pros used Xeon "Nehalem"s which uses the same architecture as the i7
Eduardo did not dive!! Grr... he fell over/dodged goalkeeper/falling with momentum as he was going across the line/whatever but not a dive? You could see he didn't say a word before or after the ref gave the decision.
