Enjoy! Although I will just say - if you aren't that much of an overclocker, the 8320 may be the best bet if you want to save a few $. If you enjoy OC'ing and want to play around a bit, the 8350 is the way to go.

Before anyone gets on me about $40, my point of view is price to performance - I don't live that well. Any little bit I can save is worth it. My rig in my specs took a couple years to build.

If you just want 4-core, 4-threads you can buy an 8320 and disable one core per module. I don't know why you would....but you could. Maybe heat/power savings while gaming when >4 threads don't help? I wouldn't get worked up about "threads" or "cores" or "modules." If you CPU isn't enough, go bigger. If it's enough, stay with what you've got.

Hey just curious what are you running for a hard drive? Like I said OCD, want those numbers to match up.
