workstation build: i7 4790k vs fx 8350

This may sound like a silly question:

but is it worth it to buy an i7 4790k over the fx?

I'm going to be using it in for video editing/ 3d modeling / rendering AND zero gaming will be done on this build

I know those are dependent a lot on ram and gpu - but didn't want to make a big mistake if there is a big difference.

Thanks in advance!

also will most likely be using adobe products like premiere and photoshop and the modeling will be done on sketchup

This is a situation where the fx performs better than the i7 sadly :(

Thanks for your honesty... that's what all the benchmarks I could find said in a wishy washy way(most being biased to single core performance)

I can now move onto investing that money saved in a better gpu.
