Im starting to get the parts for my first build and i am trying to keep it under $900 and hopefully even $850. i originally wanted an intel but found it hard to keep with my budget so i am settling on AMD. My question is, which CPU should i get. I do render, edit, and record. I also will be gaming quite a bit with games like League of legends, Planet side 2, Team Fortress 2, Minecraft, and battlefield 3 and 4 when it comes out, if i go with intel i would get the i5 but i have no idea what to get as far as an AMD CPU. Please help, thanks in advance

rendering and vid editing will be helped a lot by more cores. Cuda has better support and optimization compared to AMD's open CL so i've suggested a Nvidia card as that'll handle both rendering and gaming quiet well
