What processor to upgrade from a Q6600 quadcore?

Hi guys,

My Q6600 quadcore is overclocked to 3.3GHz and I use 8GB ram DDR3 1333.

It is pretty fast, but I need something faster for video rendering. What can I get to notice a big upgrade in speed without breaking the bank?

AMD8000 series any good? Or not worth it compared to i5/i7?
