FX 8350 if you can afford more GPU, if it makes a difference, save $30 buy the 8320 and OC to 8350 speeds.

FX 8320, unless you can find a used i7 8xx for cheap and your motherboard supports it.

Okey, Do you have any other suggestions for CPU that have the same price class as FX-8350. well i probably need to change my motherboard to, my hole computer is to old.

Okey. but i think i want to try AMD CPU. Do you have any other suggestions for CPU that have the same price class as FX-8350?

Do you have a specific budget in mind?

The BF4 Beta made me realize that my i5-750 is closing in on 4 years old! LOL I've had it OC'd @ 4GHz since November 2009. But BF4 Beta (albeit not tweaked yet) seems to push my CPU fairly hard. Mulling over whether I want to spend $500-$600 to upgrade to a Haswell i5 and new motherboard, etc.

FX 8350 is an overclocked FX 8320. 8320 is my pick.

The 8320 is a bit cheaper, with a slightly lower clockspeed. You can overclock it to 4.0 GHz without issue, and typically will get 4.1-4.4 out of it depending on what MB you're using.

If you want to save a little, the fx 6300 runs bf4 perfectly fine when overclocked. I have the game myself and I can play it on ultra at 60fps at 1920x1080 with drops only as low as 55. I'm using the fx 6300 overclocked to 4.2ghz with the r9 280x.
I would recommend the fx 6300 if you are comfortable with overclocking. If not, then the 6350.
The fx 6300 and the 8320 are both the same cpu's(vishera) and the only difference between the 2 is the 8320 has 2 additional cores. While the 6350 and 8350 are just factory overclocked varients of the 6300 and 8320.
Now those extra 2 cores will require more power to run and generate more heat.
If you want the 8 core, you could purchase a 8320 and overclock it up to a 8350 and above. The amd fx 8320/8350 will give you better multitasking performance and help with video editing/encoding and stuff like that. I will not however, make any real difference during gaming because a majority of games on the market don't use more than 4 cores with some games starting to use 6 cores. Since the games won't use the extra 2 cores, there won't be any performance gain. So in the end it comes down to what is important to you. If you think that the 8350 is going to give you gains in gaming over the 6350, then you are sadly mistaking and will regret it. But if you have use for those 2 extra cores outside of gaming then the 8 core is better for you. If you google any gaming benchmarks between the fx 6350 and 8350 or the 6300 and 8320, you willl see what I mean.
