  1. heres a comparision of the two

    you cant go wrong with either
  2. I would go with the 3470 as its faster at gaming, comparable at editing,will run much quieter and use a lot less power.
  3. At stock the 8350 takes around 80w more at nomal load and prime95 100% load

    And if you look at the benchmarks the i5 3470 gets around 20fps more in skyrim than the 8350. skyrim is pretty CPU intensivene thats why it shows a advantage

    so the i5 3470. faster,less less power, and around the same price?

    Its the i5 3470 100% unless your doing things that will use all 8cores which i doubt just snag the i5 and be happy :-)
