I do alot of video encoding

not really worried about a few FPS increases in gaming 

I use my computer basically 24 hours a day though

would this upgrade make sense? 

 

should I consider a 1600X?

Franks review of the 1600x shows nearly double the encode speed over the 8320 http://www.overclock...processor/8.htm. The 1600X would be nice if your into overclocking. Biggest bang for the buck.

 

Edit:

I guess I should ask what program(s) you are using for video encoding. Because some like NVIDIA GameShadow uses the video card to do all the work. Others relay on the CPU only. Also don't forget the Ryzen requires DDR4 memory and a new motherboard.
