I already have a crappy Zotax x58 board. I don't think it can OC very well so likely just max out the i7 at 3ghz.

So would getting the i7 920 ($90) be a better buy than an FX6300?

My friend does rendering and stuffs with above programs and wants this build to last about 5 years

Advice?

I would go with the FX 6300 and a new Am3+ motherboard if you could afford such an upgrade.

Of course for an extra $30 you could get a FX 8320...

While it's true that $90 for an i7-920 isn't a bad price, I think that you're still better off with the newer tech. The FX-6300 is a great gaming CPU and for $120, it probably offers the best gaming value out there. It doesn't bottleneck anything and by virtue of it's 6 cores, it can dedicate up to 4 cores to whatever game you're playing (if the game needs 4 cores) and dedicate the last 2 to the background Windows environment.

The priority would be rendering/editing though so that performance metric would be the most important, and isn't really my expertise

You will love a FX 8320! It's a great multitasker, and will overclock well.
