So I was feeling the itchvto upgrade for 4 months now and im in love with the new fx 8350 I just wanna know if its a viable upgrade from the phenom ill update both the mobo and cpu btw.
I game generally at a res 1440x900 and ill start a new channel to add some cool vids
What kind of frame boost id expect to get while playing both old and modern games
Thanks for any help

    Go with FX 8320 and a Gigabyte 970a-ud3p or a 990fxa-ud3 and you will be all set. It is definitely a good cpu upgrade. Your GPU tends to matter a bit more, though. If it is weak, a CPU upgrade won't do much for gaming. It will, however, help if you intend to record your games for your videos.
