Yeah those were the two I was looking at, along with an 8350.

Also bare in mind I plan on running at stock clock with no OC
Can I just get a 8350 with this Motherboard? http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB... I'm currently using it with a FX-4100(ugh) and a 7870. Will there be any issues or bottleneck if I put a 8350 on this board?(know nothing about mobo's)

There will be no issues with bottlenecking, but it is smaller than a regular ATX board (not a big deal).

Well it's the one I'm currently using so I don't see why I would upgrade/change if I don't need to. Since it won't impact on the performance of the processor and is currently perfectly fine for all my needs in terms of USB's etc I think I'm gonna go with Just getting the 8350 I think.
