But the cost is not going to be cheap as stated above you will need a new CPU, new RAM and a new motherboard so you got to weigh the pros and cons and pick whats best for you. But honestly i would jump ship and switch to intel especially if you play CPU intensive games.

yes because as everyone knows anandtech is 100% factual 100% of the time rolleyes.gif i have 3 different friends backing up my claim they all switched from 8350's to various i5's and i7's and their FPS nearly doubled in alot of games too including including battlefield 4. you can throw whatever benchmarks you cherry pick all day but in the end intel IS faster and nothing you will ever say can refute that fact. but you pay for that performance.


All i was saying is in my personal experience i saw massive improvements over AMD.

you make it sound like an FX cpu and a higher end GPU isn't capable of maintain a playable frame rate.. which is utterly incorrect.

Not capable of as high framerates in games, no. For some games this is 200fps on one CPU and 350fps on another.

For other games it's 20fps on one and 35 on the other.

I think this would be OP's best option. it would be fairly cheap and they could use their current ram

Yeah, ~1866c9 is decent. If it were slower, it might have been worth selling anyway as it's easy to drop RAM for near 100% of sales price and haswell+skylake like fastish RAM.

Thanks for all the replies.Still not totally positive on where to go from here seeing how I'll need to have it last for a few more years.Main use would be mostly gaming with some multitasking. Granted I see that the 6600k would have better overall performance over the 8350.But would it justify the fact of needing to get a new mobo ram and water block running around 600 bones.Then there's the used haswell route that was suggested.So many routes I could take even waiting it out and seeing what's to come.

rough pricing for 6600k

CPU is $254

2x8GB 3000c15 RAM is $90

Mobo - $100 is doable. Lot more choice by $150 ($444-494 total + waterblock cost)

used haswell is cheaper, just not as good performance. Still more than a match for Piledriver.

It's almost pointless to liquid cool Skylake because of the temps - there's no real overclock difference between a lowish end air cooler (like a 212) and a full water loop with 2x360mm rads for the CPU alone as 6600k's are so cool anyway and will die from the voltage before cooling issue. Haswell is hotter, especially 4770k.

Something like this maybe http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Cv7LTW .As far as WC might as stay with it considering I have everything except a block which would run around 60 putting me right under the 600 mark.Still I'll consider the things awell and continue some research before i bite the bullet.

+1 for "not worth the $$$".

There will be improvement, but not good enough to justify swapping mobo, cpu, ram.
Also, wait and see about AMD's next lineup before dumping a lot of cash on upgrades. There was a 32-core CPU advertised somewhere around...
