I have been doing video editing lately. If I keep this up and it turns a profit I want to upgrade from my AMD 3200 64 single core to this new AMD cpu.

Looks like to me AMD is back on top again for the price. The only thing that comes close to it is intels dual core with 2x4 cache at the same speed for like 550.00 or so.

So when going for a cpu what should I go for more cache or my cpu? Like if I went intel and got more cache but less speed say 3.0 instead of 3.2 with the AMD for the same price.

Is your editing program capable of using more than 2 cores? The price has dropped for the new quad-core Intels so that the low end is affordable now (around $260 US).

A 4 core for only 260??? Thats neat not one not two but four cores!

I am not sure. I will be using several different programs but thats not the only reason I want a dual core.

One program I use is SUPER for converting.

Another I plan to use is FXHOME visionlab studio or effects lab pro.

I will take a look into the 4 cores. To bad they do not make those for laptops.
