The 3770K is still better for those uses, but it all comes down to your budget and how much you're willing to pay for a little faster encoding time.

In short, the 8350 is just fine for that, but the 3770K will just do it a few seconds quicker.

The 8350 will be much less efficient than the 3770K, but since you won't be encoding 24/7, it's not that big of a deal.

And the 2600K should be around the same as the 8350, or just slightly faster, for media encoding (I haven't seen any direct comparisons, but I'm just making an educated guess).

Well, since you don't want this for gaming and only for media encoding, I suppose the 8350 makes the most sense. It'll get the job done for less money.
