fx 8350 and hd 7850?
core i5 3470 and hd 7850
core i5 2500k and hd 7850
or A10 5800k and 7850

and upgrade my system to 8GB but G.skill sniper? or corsair vengeance?

What is the budget for the whole upgrade? What country are you located in? What stores will you use?

A10's are really only meant to hybrid crossfire with weaker GPU's such as the 6670.
The AMD FX 8350 will not game as well as the i5's. This can be seen primarily through the benchmarks. I would recommend either the i5 3470 or the i5 2500k. I need to know if you are overclocking and your power supply to determine which one is better for you.

For RAM, get one with low profile heat spreaders.

I have no budget even compare these products and what I can afford masomenos I save, I have a real power 600w. I do not even overclock. but if I may I can do, I live in Colombia and the approximate value of the ram, processor, and motherboard approximates 300-400 usd

The i5 2500k is better if you want to have the option to overclock as it exceeds the performance of the i5 3470 while overclocked. However, if you can find the i5 3570k, buy that instead as it is current generation and gains the advantages of both the i5 2500k and the i5 3470. The only real advantages of the i5 3470 are less power consumption, and PCIe 3.0, which will not be used much anyway until you need to upgrade your PC again in a few years.

why do you think you have a bottleneck?

phenom ii x4 850 and HD 7850 OC should be good.

first, my processor and my graphics iam look benchmarks and when i play my processor is 100% and my grphics is 70 or 60% , second the mad x4 850 havent l3 cache iam search and few people said that the x4 955 have bottleneck with hd 7850 , mi 850 is bad than 955
