I'm looking to build a new PC. My most intensive use scenario right now is using Handbrake to backup my movie collection. So I'm looking for the fastest AMD cpu for that under $500. This leaves me looking at 3900x, 5800x (when available), or 5600x. Are the more cores in the 3900X going to give me the most benefit in this use scenario in most cases?
