I am trying to decide whether I want to buy an AMD FX 8350 without buying a new motherboard(already have compatible mobo), or get the I5 3570 with a new mobo. It will be $207 for amd vs $264 for intel+mobo. Which will give me better performance; mainly gaming wise. Also, which is better for running multiple programs at once?

I would get the AMD FX 8350 as this is cheaper and just as good as the intel i5 3570

Might I ask what motherboard you plan on getting with the i5?
If you can't spare the money for a good motherboard(@ least 100), you should go the 8350 route.
A balance of good components between cpu and motherboard is vital.

Yes, this is a good factor. In this being stated, after examining benchmarks, I have determined I will go with the 8350. (Besides I possess an after market cooler for OC which means I can make the 8350 better than the i5 3570 if needed.

Also, I forgot to ask the community. However, I find this to be the best answer. Thank you.

If your already overclocking then why in the world would you want to go with the 3570 non K? Even not overclocked the 3570 beats the 8350 in gaming. But if I already had a MoBo I'd go with the 8350 simply because of the price. It'll cost you a hell of a lot more to get the best performance.

But if it's just 8350 vs 3570k. Then the 3570k wins in gaming and for the most part, everything else. On a website including 40 benchmarks, the 3570k wins 25, the 8350 wins 13. The 8350 wins some of the multithreaded stuff, but the 3570k wins the less threaded stuff and single threaded stuff and games.

FX8350, the 8350 is much better at OCing thanks to it being unlocked, (minus the fact it might have the TDP of a GTX 480 when hitting 5GHz) unike the locked 3570 non-K and the performance between the 3570K and 8350 are practically the same, the 8350 being better for some (particularily multi-threaded apps) the 3570K being better for others (particularily single threaded apps) and in most cases, they are practically equal. However for multitasking, the 8350 hits a home run, being a highly recomended multi-tasking processor. The other thing is is that now is the worst time to be buying a dead socket (LGA1155) while AM3+ will live on with Steamroller. For the record: Contrary to popular belief the 8350 has a better bang for the buck compared to the 3570K.
Let the fanboys, both Intel's and AMD's be gone with the wind.
