So like tittle says,what's better gaming wise?? Important thing is that i will NOT overclock fx8320.
Is i5 4570 worth it over fx?
If i pair fx8320 @ stock with something like gtx770/r9 290(hd9950) cpu will bottleneck right?

only 1 thing fx-8320 is an 8 core cpu (with witch is waaaaaay too overclockable if ull feel doing it in the future)so dont be concerned about bottleneck , if u prefer u can get the FX-8350 with 4.0Ghz stock.

u should know that the best games today use 4 cores max (BF3 can use up to 6 and maybe same goes to BF4) but as the new x-box and PS4 will have an 8 core CPU witch shows the usege of games in the future

With both at stock, the 4570 is better:-

Although the new consoles will have 8 cores they run at very slow 1.75 (XBone) & 2.0GHz (PS4) speeds, so even with 100% perfect scaling (which never happens in reality), they're still slower than most modern quad-cores. This is partly why many next-gen console games (inc Battlefield 4) are either 720p/60fps or 1080p/30fps:-
