Which is better?

Main uses for this comp:
- Gaming
- Video Editing
- Music Production/Editing in Ableton
- Lots of multi-tasking

I have a limit of around the £600 to £800 region. Any other processors that are better for those uses that are £200 or less?

I'd say the i5 will be better in general mainly because you want gaming performance but the FX8150 would be better for everything else you listed.
