Help:

I'm planning to buy a new rig this April mainly for 3D rendering / video editing and i'm looking for cheap/affordable price but can perform really good as well. So i'm thinking which one should I get considering the two factors (price & performance) should i get the AMD FX-8350 or Intel i7-3820? I know there are better intel processors there but it comes too pricy. Thanks!

P.S. what GPU should i pair it with if choosing FX-8350 or i7-3820

Well the Intel i7-3820 is faster than the 8350 by a decent margin. price/performance of 8350's sibling 8320 is best.

thank you for your answer.

Thank you for answers guys!

i'm gonna using it mainly for 3D rendering programs like Autodesk Maya but will also use Zbrush, After Effects, Photoshop which I will use for creating heavy 3D environments and characters. In my experience in our field, we need more processing power, we only need GPU power for the program's viewport or hardware rendering.. but in my case the final output will not be in hardware render (what you see in games) rather what you see in 3D films.. so I'm thinking if Sapphire HD 7850 would be enough to support FX-8350? it is 1gb 256-bit GDDR5?

The majority of 3d rendering software and editing software are designed to run on weak rigs because a company who already needs to buy these thousand dollar pieces of software aren't going to dish out for a gaming pc. You'd be better off saving your money and buying the 8320 or 8350. And as for your question on graphics, you should be fine with that.
