By the looks of it, the 2600k is your best bet. I'm not very fond of Bulldozer, but that's just my opinion. I've always had better luck with Intel. The higher prices are justifiable, imo.

My suggestion is upgrading the cpu. Not sure how much time that will actually save you in rendering, though. I've got a buddy who just graduated film school and whenever we talk about the prospects of upgrading rigs for rendering, he always feels it's just the nature of the beast unless you have some killer "rendering farm" somewhere.

Either that or get in a rhythm of putting your rendering off until bedtime. Personally, that's what I do when I need to render video reviews/projects. Just get them set up and queued while I am sleeping. Then come next morning, I'm good to go.
