I dont know if its worth to put more money on the cpu.

The Computer im building is

8gb Ram 2133Mhz
Motherboard ASUS M5A97 R2.0
2TB
Nvidia GTX 650ti (or is better to get the equivalent of tha AMD?)
And one of those two CPUs

Depends, what are you using it for?
Battlefield 4 uses more than 4 cores, so the more the merrier.
Rendering and multitasking can chew up your CPU cores, so using Adobe After Effects and PhotoShop would be easier with 8 cores.
Running VMs would be smoother with 8 cores. But I would suggest an 8350 if you are going to upgrade.

All the best,

Pretty funny you should say that as I literally completed just that upgrade within the last week. I had a specific video to render to test the difference. My old 6300 completed it in 1 Min 24 sec, with the 8320 completing it in about 1 min 12 sec. In all, about 15% quicker renders.

Im using it for gaming, from old to new games, like BF4, or Skyrim with mods and Minecraft with Shaders, and using Adobe after effects, and NUKE, not at the same time, but if i choose the FX-8320, do i need a more powerfull motherboard than the ASUS M5A97 R2.0??

The m5a97 is compatible with the 8320, check for bios number incase you need to update it(if you got it a while back)

Unless you're planning on doing some serious overclocking, no, that board will do fine. Same board I'm using in my 8320 build and it performs great. The 8320 also has a pretty large performance gain in CPU intensive games such as BF4, and I've got a solid 10-15 FPS gain over the 6300.
