It won't excel, but it will work. Depending on the rest of the system. In that job, it should have a leg up on a C2D dual core.

Just my opinion... but for gaming, the G520 would be a bit better. But for your task of video encoding... I'd take the extra core of the Phenom X3 8250e.

It won't be ideal, but it will do what you want to do. If it were me though, I'd get the celeron. It will likely be faster with most tasks and you can upgrade to any Sandy Bridge CPU later on down the road, whereas with the first gen Phenom, your pretty much stuck unless you have an AM3 board.

on the video encoding side though with handbrake would the extra core be more benefical then bump in clock speed

I'm going to leave this discussion to those more well-versed in video encoding. But from what I've read, (all else being equal) more cores is better for that task.

would this perform well for blu rays?

If you mean viewing blu-ray disks, yes. Almost any modern processor will handle that job.
