I don't play SCII but I wouldn't be surprised If FX-8120@4.5Ghz equals or beats 965@3.8-3.9 there. Perhaps sell your cpu and get an FX-6300 or FX-8320?

965BE@4,0GHz is little bit better in SCII but slower in many other tasks, I wouldnt do it.

Instead, overclock your 8120 higher or get the 8320 and overclock it (or if SCII is basically the only game you play, consider switching to Intel...)

I just built a pc with the 965BE for playing sins of a solar empire, skyrim, a bunch of hl2 mods and things of the like, couldn't be happier with all my previous gen hardware
