    Any suggestions for processors would be appreciated. Wanted a 1080p gaming / streaming / editing machine.
    AMD or Intel, I don't mind. As long as it's affordable (Around £100, $150, € 130)
    I also don't mind what socket it uses as long as I can get a DDR3 mobo.

    Gaming: i5
    Video editing: i7 with as many cores as you can get on high clock.

    Oh, wait, under 150,-...

    AMD...

    As many cores and clock as you can get for 150,- would end up being a:

    AMD A10-7890K 4.1 Ghz, 4MB L2 Cache, FM2+ socket.

    Oh, wait, pounds...

    AMD FX-9370, 4.4GHz, 8MB, AM3+

    But that is a 220 watt CPU, which most FM2+ Motherboards won't support... No idea which board actually will support it.
