I wouldn't go with the old FX-6100. Go with the 3rd generation Intel (i5) or the new FX from AMD. The FX6300 is supposed to be promising as well as the 4300.

+1
If you want AMD, go the new FX6300, but I would recommend a i5 Ivy Bridge...
Also, no gpu? Do you have one? the i5 DOES have 4000 integrated, but it will be woefully inadequate for rendering...

Do you need a video card for rendering?I thought it was just raw cpu power.

A video card would help very much.

Indeed, a gpu WOULD help.
And no, it is usually not raw cpu power, although it *can* probably render without, but........

So, what video card should I get then?It NEEDS to be under £500 all together so should I get a A10-5800K instead and pair it with a video card?

It all depends... what "kind" of rendering? high quality videos, low, etc ?
October 30, 2012 6:51:59 PM

High quality videos and I eventually want to be able to game with this, so IF I could pair the 5800k with a HD 6670 then it would mean I would be able to play most games.

Hmm... given how much money you have available, that probably would be best, although I do not think you can game at 1080p (I have a llano A8-3850, no 6670)
I have a 7770 now, but I believe I got about ~40 fps on 720p med or low quality on the apu alone.

P.S.: be sure to get a FM2 MB.

EDIT: On Skyrim.

Its ok, I just want to be able to play some PC-exclusive games and render quite fast Could someone recommend me a Intel Version of this build as I would like to compare them.

Well, if you *do* go intel, you can't get the apu. And also, you can't compare Piledriver vs sandy/ivy bridge clock to clock.
For the same price though, it will be a i3-3220.

Looking here though, it seems quite close...
