my budget is about £850 and im looking at the fx 8320 which with all my rig combined is roughly £810
My RAM is 8GB corsair
My Mobo is ASUS P8Z77-V LX or ASUS M5A78L-M - it depends on what proccessor i get.
I will play on a 1080p monitor and maybe doing 2 monitors.
I will be playing games such as Empire, Napoleon,Rome/2 total war and also plantetside 2, Arma 3, COH, BF2/3/4 and such like.
Which one will be best suited for me
I know that the 3570 is better than the fx but please remember i am on a budget! Also im NOT OC the cpu.

I like Intel the most in every case, but at this time I would recommend the 8320 without thinking, due to :
1-It's an 8-core CPU, which gives you power in every task and longevity before you need an upgrade. 2-In case you ever considered OC , well ... (bingo) says it all . 3- Upgrade path-wise you can buy steamroller (AMD's upcoming chip) for the same MB you have because it's an AM3+ chip, intelon the other hand will force you to change the ENTIRE build if want to upgrade.
So, economically and logically ... AMD wins here
my vote goes to 8320 as its as good as the i5 in games at stock speeds and in the future it probably performs better than the i5! also in the future if you want to upgrade your cpu if you get the amd cpu you ll not have to purchase a new mobo but if you go with intel you ll have to!
