The ever-redundant question: AMD or Intel? More precisely, FX-8320, FX-8350, 3570k or 3770k. I can no longer tell which benchmarks are BIASED and which ones are UNBIASED. Tek Syndicate, Linus... seen 'em, but can I believe 'em? Most benchmarks point to even the i5's beating the FX's, but some say that the 8350 approaches the performance of an i7. I am unbiased towards either company, and I would also like to see unbiased reviews, benchmarks and comments from you guys.

Prices AS OF THIS MOMENT (@ Micro Center):
8320 for $149: http://www.microcenter.com/product/401796/FX_8320_Black...
8350 for $179: http://www.microcenter.com/product/401795/FX_8350_4GHz_...
4670k for $199 (Why not? It's $10 more than IB): http://www.microcenter.com/product/413251/Core_i5_4670K...
3770k for $249: http://www.microcenter.com/product/388575/Core_i7_3770K...

I will be gaming and probably talking to friends on Skype in the background, and maybe also have some pages open in Chrome, you know... real world scenarios. I plan on purchasing an MSI GTX 760, as it suits my needs. I use Photoshop here and there... Nothing crazy. I already have Crysis (1, Warhead & 2), Batman: Arkham City and similar games. So which CPU would be best for me? Thanks for the help guys :)

Any of those will be overkill. Just pair any of them with a 2gb DDR5 $200 Graphic Card.

Okay so if you want the best gaming performance go for the i5 4670k or fx 8350 but in everyday tasks like chrome and watchin videos i5 4670k will be slightly really slightly better. The FX 8320 is for overclockers, vigorous overclockers. You could get a fx 8320 if youre on a budget and overclock but mind you its not on par with i5 4670k even by overclocking. Now, about the i7 3770k, if you edit videos and photoshop a lot then the hyperthreading of i7 will be better. But for pure gaming and everyday tasks, get the i5 4670k
BTW how did you get the 4670k for $199. It's 245 dollars in Canada. XD
