At current prices, FX 8100 vs 8300

We know the new Piledriver 8300 series processors are performing a bit better than the Bulldozer series, but due to poor sales, there are a lot of cheap 8100 series processors out there. For example, Newegg has a $20 coupon code off the FX-8150 making it only $169. That's cheaper than an 8320. The FX8120 is only $159.

So that means we have:

8120: $159
8150: $169
8320: $179
8350: $219

At these prices, the FX-8150 might be the bang for the buck winner. What do you guys think? Which one wins price/performance at these prices?

  1. When just looking at those four then the 8320 would be the most bang for the bucks.
  2. the $20 extra for 8320 gives you atleast 15% more performance than 8150.
    so just get the 8320
  3. 8320.

    And benchmarks often show them neck and neck:
