Yep. The reason is when editing video/encoding, most programs are only using the CPU, a lot of RAM, and accessing the disk frequently. But while gaming you are almost always running the CPU, RAM, disk I/O, and video card at full tilt. Just make sure you have a good power supply, surge protector, voltage regulation is a plus, and the computer is clean of dust and debris.
