what quadcore are you using right now for rendering?
I dont use Sony Vegas, but I ran some tests with Adobe After Effects when I got my FX6100.
At 4.2Ghz it beats my i5-2310 in rendering, even though the i5 had better IPC.
If your main purpose is rendering everyday, get an FX 8 or 6core and a good cpu cooler.
Another cheap option would be to look for a used i7 2600K.
If you will be gaming half of the time, and only do video editing once in awhile, better get an i5 3570K or 4670K.
They run cooler, and have better IPC for games with poor multi-threading.
