Intel Core I3 4340 vs AMD FX 8320

Hey guys,

The title says it all. What should I get the FX 8320 vs I3 4340, I know the I3 has only 2 cores but, 4 threads and the FX 8320 has cores and 8 Threads. However some benchmarks show that the I3 nearly beats out the 8320 so what do you think. Also, I'm on a budget and plan to pair up one of these CPU's with a Sapphire R9 270X. The I3 is $150, however the 8320 is $160. What do you guys think. Please Respond ASAP.

    what are you going to be using your pc for? amd am3+ platform don't have many uatx motherboards, mostly atx motherboards. all the am3+ microatx, fx supporting motherboards i found on newegg are based on older 760G chipset not officially supported by amd. moreover, they may not support all fx cpus.
    almost all atx am3+ motherboards with 970, 990fx chipset don't have this problem.
