currently, running Intel Quad 9550 with 4 GB DDR2 for last 3 years or so.... thinking to upgrade with new CPU and more ram (most likely 16 GB)... which CPU would you recommend? No game and no overclocking....I have nVidia GTX 550ti and SSD HD crucial M4.
The 3470 would be a huge mistake for a video editing build. I don't even recommend it for a gaming build given the better value of the 3570k. As other have stated, budget-wise, the FX 8350 is a better choice but don't let this mislead you. The i5 3570K can give the FX 8350 a run for its money as it is.
