Multi GPU is the single area where the FXs fall short. That plus CPU heavy games like SC2, WoW, skyrim, GW2 etc.

http://vr-zone.com/articles/amd-fx-8350-vs-intel-core-i7-3770k--4.8ghz--multi-gpu-gaming-performance/17494.html (<---- 7970 CFX)

And as for that little youtube review, please do not pay attention to it. The reviewers made a really sloppy job, they had different setups for all CPUs coupled with different spec'd memory, the GPU was of no relevance to the test nor to your situation, the review is full of errors, the methods are inconsistent, he never mentions the benching sequences, some of the results make absolutely zero sense and the whole thing is generally all over the place. All the results given there are bad and should not be relied on. And that goes for all CPUs.

I think one fine gentleman did a gamng review between i5 and fx 8350 here on ocn itself and acc. to his findings the multi gpu performance gap was not at all worth to warrant i5's purchase instead of fx 8350 !

In modern games? YES!!!

There should be an asterisk on that statement as it is only partially true. See above.

Even if the i5 and i7 do perform better in that area I'm still getting the 8350 just because of the upgradibility and that it still handles games well enough it seems,

If you can afford an Xeon they why not go X79 and a 3820 or a 3930k? It is much better for multi GPU, heavy work loads and will have IVY-E.

Been looking at a couple of reviews, and I honestly can't recommend the 8320 unless you're 100% sure you're going to use it for the things it's actually good at. Yes it's cheaper, and yes it has an upgrade path, but it still isn't quite there in performance, and I actually wonder how much better Steamroller will be on the same socket because part of AMD's problem seems to be that the platform is holding them back. Compatibility is nice but not when it's holding back performance.
Thus I vote for the 3570K, as although the socket isn't going to see any better CPUs than what's on the market right now (with the possible exception of a clock bump), it'll still be competitive for a long time.
If you prefer having an upgrade path, it may be worth looking into X79 if you can find a good deal. Get a decent board and a 3820 (which is no slouch) and if you want or need an upgrade down the road, drop in an IB-E.

I realise you made up your mind by now, but oh well. Didn't see the thread was reopened until now.

The 8350 is only going to be as up-gradable if AMD is actually still making desktop procs in 2 years which at this point it time is very questionable. I do not wish to see AMD go anywhere but the reality is they have publically stated they concede the high performance desktop market to Intel and have no plans to try to compete going forward. They are moving more to mainstream, mid level SKU's (i.e their APU's) and SoC products. So... the 1155 socket is dead after Ivy and the AM3+ will live for years, but will you actually be able to buy a higher performing CPU to put in the socket in 2 years? Future proofing is really a myth. Buy what you need and use it. When your needs change, buy what you need and use it...
