So my processor is AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965 Processor, 3400 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s). I am in need of a new processor for playing Battlefield 4 and recording the game itself. Any advice? Thank you!

I was going to recommend a 8320 as I personally have one and its fantastic considering it overclocks like a beast and plays BF3, BF4, Crysis2, Crysis 3, Tomb Raider, Farcry 3 EXCELLENTLY! Basically, all the new games would run great. Old games like Counterstrike source may get 180fps rather then 190fps but whoopdy doo right? The only thing that makes me hesitant is that motherboard. It says it supports the 8320 and does have 8+2 phases so you should be good. I just wouldn't overclock it past anything that needs more then 1.45v. I got mine for 144 on Amazon, not sure if its the same price now. Just be sure to have the F7 Bios or newer for the motherboard. Just be sure to update the bios the the F7 or newer revision so it can support the piledriver cpu.

This, CSS also runs great on 180FPS, haha, its not like CSS needs to be 4000 FPS.

6300 optimal, 8320 overkill but won't hurt..

Games like watch dogs that are coming out will benefit from the extra cores :) 

Also it leaves headroom for minimal FPS loss when streaming/recording or multitasking in general.

So in other words get the 8320? Any specific model that you all have, maybe a link?

Don't get the fx8350 get the 8320. you have a very very good chance of clocking it to 4.4GHz or at least equal to the 8350 if you would like. It's the same exact chip with different stickers.
