i bet this will actually be a choice cpu for video editors!
If you think about it, the operations in video editing are actually pretty simple, but there's a huge amount of them that has to be done.
If you were a video editor, you would want whole lot of parallel processing capabilities in your cpu and also a high clock speed. unlike games where multiple operations per clock cycle seems to be more important.
The fx-9000 might actually be able to compete with sandy bridge E for video editing at least, because it's high clock speed and 8 cores would give it a huge advantage over intel.
