All depends on what software you are going to use for video editing.

The FX-8150 is actually a very nice CPU if you're using your rig for a multi-threaded application. I would personally go with the FX-8150 :)  OC the CPU and you'll get even more performance.

8120. It can be overclocked to 8150 specs with almost no effort.

965BE or 8120

Better to wait a fortnight for the new generation to release though

The FX 8150 is much much better but the next generation of AMD CPU's are going to come out very soon so i suggest you wait for them.They will be compatable with your motherboard by the way.
