Welcome to the forums!

Well, ones single core and ones dual core. If they were the same price, I'd go with the D 820 for the sake that it's dual core and that should help your multimedia encoding.

Overclocked, my 3200+ has slightly better performance than my 820 D overclocked, but again, it only has one core.
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
