Oh noes! How did you know for fact that I can't afford an i7?!" Man you should be getting paid to be a mind reader! Perhaps, I didn't see the point of getting one because I figured my video work would not be that intensive? rolleyes.gif

he wasnt trying to insult you but merely pointing out the obvious assumption.
Anyway at that price range, the i3 is not as good compared to amd.

Go for an FX4300 or 5800K and overclock them to 4.5ghz. Either will surely work better at rendering.
If you plan on only using stock cooler, they can manage up to 4.2ghz safely.
Only grab the i3 if you're concerned about power consumption, the i3 will only eat half of the power needed by a 5800K at full load.

What programs were you planning on using? I can vouch for Adobe Premiere and After Effects, they work flawlessly with amd FX and APUs.
I dont have Sony Vegas so I cant vouch for its compatibility.

I've used Sony Vegas, and then Premier, and man do I gotta say, I applaud you for being able to use that program. EVERYTHING IS MANUAL IN PREMIER even moving the cursor. Sheesh. I will be using the computer mostly for Pro Tools, Photoshop/Lightroom, and Vegas.

It has to be Intel, as I have the rig already and the only thing missing is the case, and the cpu. Everything else is already here. I want to be able to pack up my studio and take it on the road, but I hate laptops, so this will be a mini recording studio powered by a Mbox 2 and Pro Tools 8 LE. I'm really not going to be doing like heavy video work. Just promotional stuff for me and a few others I know in the industry. What would be a good mid-range cpu then?

Okay, so going by Passmark scores, the i3 3220 is about 48% faster than the G860 in multithreaded work. I have personally done a lot of audio work (mostly FL Studio) on my old OC'ed i5-760, which would rate similarly to the current i3.

I would say that you wouldn't notice much difference between the two CPUs in the audio work. The video work is another story. Assuming the video work is truly occasional / light use I think the i3 would be a good choice. If you think you might be doing more than very occasional video work, I'd seriously consider an looking at least at an entry-level i5 such as an i5-3330, which will give you about an additional 40% speed bump over the i3.

Hope this helps.
