  1. Best answer
    Both of them will serve your purpose.
    The FX CPU however might be more suited to your needs.
  2. Well, as far as I know, VMs and some of the other tasks you want to do work better with more threads/cores, so the FX8350 (an 8-core CPU) would probably be better for you. If I'm wrong, hopefully someone will jump in and correct me.
  3. i no AMD fan but i second what SlitWeaver said. server, VM's, etc do benefit from having extra core so the FX-8350 would be better.
  4. FX8350.
  5. Thanks Guys for ur Advice

    The 8350 is currently the most powerful CPU is the FX series. If you want a better one, you'll have to wait (unless you want to get some Opetrons or something)
  7. I'd save some money and go with the 8320
