As you can see my CPU is the weakest link of my system and is near 100% across all cores during a multiplayer game while my GPU is chillin at only 60-70% load. still trying to decide between the two CPUs based of price-per-performance, but anything will be a huge step-up from what i have now.
I do a fair amount of render work ( Adobe CS6 + Raytracing / Adobe Illustrator / Sony Vegas Pro 9/11 ) including video game footage. I used to have a FX-8120 which did really well in these applications but when i upgraded to FX-8350 render times dropped by upwards of 30% ( so a 1 hr render now takes 42 min or less if overclocked ). I can say for sure that these Vishera's love to render and i love not having to wait ages to get through tons of work. Recording footage with Vishera is no issue so far with my setup, i get average 50-60fps recording @1920x1080.
Whether you want to go with FX8320 and save some money or go with FX8350 you will definitely see huge improvements in rendering over your current cpu. Im fairly sure the FX8XXX series will outperform the closest Intel Equivalent ( i5 3570k ?? ) both in gaming and multitasking apps. I say go for it
