hi guys im just wondering is a fx 8320 good for video editing with sony vegas and i have this board GA-970A-UD3
i have a hd 7870Originally Posted by FastMHz
Yes, and don't cheap out on the video card. Vegas can offload a lot of work to the GPU:
what quadcore are you using right now for rendering?Originally Posted by skitz9417
yea it did help yea im thinking about getting a fx 6100 for cheap and use my gpu at the same time to render videos and because my four core doesnt cut it
i have a x4 945 quad core and yea maybe but its hard to find old stuff for cheap in austratia and i may just save up nad get a 8320Originally Posted by edalbkrad

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.
I used to have one of these before I replaced it with a Sabretooth. VRM is pretty anemic on the 970A-UD3, so you'll have to be careful when OCing higher power parts.
