Which cpu is best for me

I want to build my own PC but i'm a newbi. I would like to upgrade to windows 7 eventually (I have been told intel is best for this). I use my PC for media more than anything else, surfing and converting movie files. so i need one that is quite quick. very rarely i may use it to play games. so i need one that i can add a decent HDD to. money is the major issue. can anyone recomend anything as there is so much out there.

  1. What is your budget? There are so many CPUs that can be used for your purposes but money will narrow it down.
  2. Windows 7 - Does not matter whether AMD or Intel
    Media - Anything streaming has to do with internet provider, however a better processor and video card can provide better images
    Converting files - SSD's all the way + a good processor, hyperthreading is useful here.

    We do need a budget, for your uses the i7-3770k would work great but its quite expensive.
