I would probably go for the 990 chipset don't make the same mistake as me going for the 970.

already went with this setup is the 970 motherboard going to hurt the performance of the 8350?

No it wont but its a newer chipset you would probably get a much higher performance boost because your processor is a newer model of the FX-series line up of processors.
