Best AMD Processor for video editing?

I am a hardcore video editor. I use many many special effects and stuff like that. I also do a lot of graphic design. I use Cinema 4D and Adobe Illustrator a ton. I mainly work with Adobe products. Gaming doesn't really matter to me. I have an Xbox that I play occasionally. However if the processor recommended just happens to be okay with gaming as well I don't mind. I am strictly looking for AMD. No Intel. Please don't even recommend it. I have my mind set on AMD right now. Please inform me what processor would be best for a mainly video/graphic design computer. Thank you all so much i really appreciate it.

  1. If you want the "ABSOLUTE BEST" AMD Processor, That'd be the "FX-8350 Vishera Processor."

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113284

    It performs 15-25% better than the FX-8150

    I am also going to pick one of these up once I get some money.
  2. FX-8350 and a high end GPU.

    Any reason why on not getting Intel?

    +1

    Only kiddding.

    You will need as many cores as you can get, at as high a rate clock speed as you can.

    FX-8350 + Alot of RAM + High End CPU and more than likely an SSD

    But yeah best AMD you can get FX-8350
  7. Awesome.

    I will go with the FX-8350, 16gb of ram (32gb in the near future) and as far as graphics go i have one picked out i just can't remember the name.

    The reason I don't want Intel is strictly because of price. Intel makes quality product no doubt, but I don't want to blow tons of money on it.

    I totally agree! AMD has a better value, the FX-8350 performs just about on par or a little bit better in some areas compared to the i7-2600k and can even compete with the i7-2700k in some areas. It's a good processor! How ever, if you lived my microcenter you could pick up a i7-2700k for $230.00 but AMD's mobo's are still cheaper in price. For RAM I reccomend Corsair for video editing. They have some cool tech out there...
