Hello,

Which i3 do you have? I would advice against upgrading to FX 8350 as that would not be an upgrade if your i3 is at least sandy bridge one.

I would go with the AMD processor, you will not lose any games as they are all stored on your hard drive.

I see. Upgrading to FX 8350 would be a sin - you will be disappointed with its performance for the price you pay. Going with intel would be a much better choice.

As for the games: you will have to reinstall them unless they are steam/origin games.

theres a good chance you will have to re-register the games on origin. it uses a similar validation to windows 7 and xp in that if you change to much it thinks your running a different pc. its not really a big deal as most games can be run on more than 1 pc but they do have a limited amount of validations b4 you have to either buy a new license or contact e.a directly.

i5-3570K is the best gaming CPU you can get. It's twice as good as FX-3850 and is cheaper.

Why are you downgrading your CPU?
