The i7-2600k is still performs better in games than the FX-8350. See game benchmarks in the following links:

In single player Battlefield 4 there is no real difference in performance between either AMD or Intel since the campaign is not really CPU intensive (like BF3). However, just like BF3, multiplayer in BF4 is real CPU intensive. There are no BF4 multiplayer benchmarks which includes Sandy Bridge generation CPUs. The only multiplayer review with benchmarks that I am aware of this the following from Hardwarepal.com. However, it compares Intel Haswell generation i5-4670k and i7-4770k to the FX-8350.

I don't play BF4 and I don't know if the Mantle patch has been released yet. Therefore, the effects of Mantle is unknown. However, you need to have a Radeon HD 7xxx or Rx series card to take advantage of Mantle.

Better to Keep the i7-2600k. Less Power Consumption, More Performance, Less heat.

i am using it with an asus gtx770 oc, so i think mantle does not apply to my specs.

since i am playing mostly multiplayer, and i am also going to play other games like watch dogs etc. which one do you suggest?

The Intel i5-2600k basically outperforms the FX-8350 in nearly all the game benchmarks I have seen.

Supposedly, watch dogs likes AMD. That being said, overall the i7 2600k is a better chip.

I would keep the 2600k and overclock it. Its the better all rounder. Faster in single thread tasks, and about equal in multithreaded.

what about general performance? i mean i will also try to edit some videos for youtube, convert them to other formats/codecs multiple times, but i am not going to do 3d or some hardcore encoding. as a general purpose computer which one do you suggest, and what do you think it will be in a year or two (i will not be able to upgrade my pc at least 3-4 years)

I would still say the 2600k.

If you are encoding/editing, see if you can use GPU accelleration either OpenCL or Cuda depending on your GPU, its far far faster than using your CPU.

i think i will stick with intel, less noisy, lower power consumption, and my zalman z11 plus (amd case) wasnt helping my gpu about cooling, i couldnt even play bf4 for 2 minutes, now i have tested for hours and it works like a charm.i hope i wont regret it after a few months

What about while streaming and recording? I want to record all my gameplay and stream sometimes, I also want to do video editing (rendering time is unimportant).
I have found both used i7 2600k and a FX 8350 Black Edition... Will the AMD be better when I game with programs like fraps and obs(for streaming) running in the background?

The 2600k, especially with overclocking.

I use a 8350 every day, and I have a 2500k in one of my own machines and the intel is the better chip in most of cases.

Thats just an overpriced overclocked 8350. Still better off with the 2600k, get a nice cpu cooler and overclock it to 4.5Ghz.

Not worth it. A Xeon 1231v3 would beat it. A nicely clocked 2600k would as well.

Is this a good mobo to go alongside? I can get it for 35 euro: http://www.asus.com/nl/Motherboards/P8H61_PLUS/specific...

It only supports 1333Mhz memory, and 6gb/s SATA will this be a significant bottleneck? If not, I wont have a problem with only one pci-e 16x slot and usb 2.0

I would not pair that board with a 2600k. You ideally want a Z77 board for that.
