New system for media encoding

Hi I have an old AMD 9950 2.6ghz system with 4g/bytes 800mhz memory that i use to recode blueray films for my own personal use. I use Nero recode to reduce them down I get a frame of about 7/8 frames a second on average so it takes
about 4 times the running time recode a bluray film i bought. My current system is 5 years old and I am looking to build a new one.

I have considered the AMD vishera 8core ghz as the basis for my system considering that I use it to recode films with. Would this the best chip or am I better of going for a new i7 ivy bridge system. Any advice anyone!!.
