Ok, I am not going to say Intel is terrible like I used to say (I'll give you that one, alvino).. but I recommend... STRONGLY recommend AMD 64 over any Intel CPU, because AMD is faster 80% of the time. The video/music editing is a mix bag... AMD is faster in some cases, and Intel is faster in others. Typically only by very little when it comes to both. But.. AMD costs less. Therefore AMD is the one I'll recommend.

Get chipset 939. More modern.

Umm is that budget range for the CPU alone?

get the 3500+ 64. its a great cpu. i myself am getting a 3700+, but its $350. so yeah. the fx is by far the fastest, but its like almost $1000 bux the last time i checked. yeha, nice one gian. good choice there. intel is just $$$ while amd is $ and is cooler and better. intel just has a faster speed, like 3.8 or whatever. thats bs. amd's fx 2.6 ghz will whoop any ee intel cpu anyday. look on amd's benchmark's site if u dont believe me, on www.amd.com/
