ok so I have done a little research. The question that always comes up is that of software. Will the benefits of the fx8350 outway the i7 3770k for similar video/audio processing (and normal use) with current software (which may not be optimized)
? Also what MOBO would I mate to the CPU
Asus M5A99FX EVO R2.0 is a good choice, Asrock 990FX extreme3 or extreme9 would be good (the BIOS for extreme4 has a tendency to be buggy). Gigabyte 990FX ud3 or ud5 or ud7. You could even go to a 970 series board to save some money if you're not going to use SLI...
