Look, I had a i5-3570k build set up but I have to make a few cost cuts. What is the best AMD CPU that does not exceed $200. I have looked at the CPU comparison charts here, and the best listed is the FX-8150. Is that a good CPU?

The new Piledriver series did catch my eye, but I was unsure due to few benchmarks and such. Looks like I will stick with that, but what about a nice mobo?
