Hi Guys:

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.

Thanks for your opinion.

for video editing which use more core, FX-8350

i think fx8350 is better for video editing

I would only pick an i7 3770k over the 8350 and even then its $100+ more, so maybe not.

Therefore the 8350 would be my choice here by a long shot!

the 8350 is just as good in design and video editing. and cost 120-130 less than the 3770k.

Definitely the 8350. No doubt.

The fx is way better unless you get an i7

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.

What Intel will get you is hyperthreading. This goes A LONG WAY when editing. You can read up on it here: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/hyper-threading/hyper-threading-technology.html

Well the 3570K only has 4 cores, i do video rendering, etc when i use cinema 4D and i render, each core gives you a small box to render, basically each core renders a box. More cores =Faster rendering, so the 8350 has 8 cores, which means more performance for rendering / editing , While the 3570K is a very good CPU it wouldn't be ideal for rendering comparing to a 8-core processor.

The 3570K is a better buy (rather, the 4670k at this point). More cores does not mean better rendering. Hyperthreading makes up for that a lot . Speed of the processor is another big factor as is RAM and most importantly, whether his software uses multi-core rendering and how many of those cores it will use.

Nothing is as simple as black and white my friend.

Just look at the comparison chart: http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i5-4670K-vs-AMD-FX-8...

The two are nearly identical, with the Intel chip coming in a LITTLE more expensive with an annual savings of about 70$ in electricity. It's a no-brainer.

Well the 4570k (i5) doesen't have hypertreading. so no your stuck with 4 cores, and i garuntee you more cores gives you better rendering performance, Each Core renders a peice of it, More cores Equals more boxes? Make sense? i hope so please do some research.

I can tell you 8350 with 16 - 32 GB ram would be good , works well for me .
