Just need to figure out which is dragging me down the worst. Taxes are coming back soon and I need to know. Was considering the AMD FX-8350 (4.0ghz) or the AMD 7850 2gb. Was also looking to the FX-6350 and putting what i'd save on the 8-core towards a video card. Decision, decisions.

Go for FX 6350 and Sapphire 7850 combo :D  The 8350 is not very much visible now unless you are rendering, video editing and what not.

AMD is at a dead end with the Intel HASWELL release, and hasn't shown anything to compete at the same level now. Your best (but in the end will need to replace very soon anyway) solution would be FX-8350, because it can compete against the iCore series in the newest games, but realistically it is at the end as well if more demands are pushed on them.
