My specs are as follows!

-16 gb ddr3 ram @ 1600
-Radeon 7770 ( will be upgrading in the future)
-an anthlon II x4 630 at 2.8GHz
-1 TB hdd

I need to know what cpu by amd is the best fit for gaming and rendering video. If i had to choose, I am primarily using my pc for gaming. Do I need 8 cores? My cpu currently in the system is only getting .8 ghz, its on its last limb. HELP! THANKS GUYS!

If you want to keep using the same motherboard you will have to go to the makers webpage for it and find the cpu support list

The FX 8 cores would be the best choice for encoding IF IT WILL RUN IN YOUR MOTHERBOARD
