How is a Phenom II X4 Black Edition's 980, 975 a upgrade fro a 1055t? I do not do much gaming I do more video encoding than gaming
and a AMD Phenom II X6 1055t blow away a quad core CPU in that.

the 1055t has a lower clock speed. Since most games dont use more than 3 cores, the phenom x6 has 3 cores totally going to waste in most games, clock speed matters more.

Where does a a 1055t stand if u over clock it to 3.8 GHZ? Does video encoding apps that use all 6 core of my 1055t beat Intel quad core CPU'S?

No, Your 6 core AMD processor will be about the same or slightly faster than many of the older Core 2 quads in that respect, but the new generation sandy bridge CPU's are vastly superior at encoding.

yes, video encoding apps will often benefit from more cores, depending on the app. Just google "phenom x6 review" you will find all the information you need.
