Awesome deal for a 4690k? Yes. Optimal for video editing? Not really, that'd be a 1231v3. Will you find a 1231 for around that price? Probably not.

I'd recommend a G3258 or an Athlon x64.

That's on you. On the one hand, it's an amazing deal. On the other hand, it is not optimal for the tasks you want to do. It will perform adequately, but not optimally.

He is geting that i5 for $100 so I would say it is worth it.
