I'm looking for a CPU that is better than the one I have right now. (Capable of recording minecraft with high settings: 1080p 120FPS + Render with sony vegas 14 at 1440p 60fps)
Motherboard: ASROCK FM2A88M
CPU: AMD Athlon 880k
GPU: Nvidia 1050 ti

Sorry for replying late, I have 16GB's of ram and did some research into CPU's for this motherboard. I knew that I would need probably need a new motherboard to get a better CPU so I came here to check if I was right on the fact that I would need a new motherboard for a better cpu. Budget doesn't matter but i'm trying to go for the cheapest option.
What's your budget? A better CPU will involve a new motherboard and RAM as well.

You'll need DDR4 RAM, so your existing RAM doesn't help here.

Some kind of budget neighborhood really would be useful. I'd be looking at a Ryzen 3000 series, but I have no idea if that's in your budget range.
