    I'm choosing one of these two for my next build. I'm deciding which one to use. The 8350 is $30 more expensive, but doesn't appear to be better. It just looks like an overclocked 8320, which i can do myself. Here is my build so far

    FX 83X0
    GTX 960
    8GB RAM
    1TB HDD

    Out of those, 8320.

    No point to get the 8350, it's just an 8320 with a higher default multiplier. Get 8320, change multiplier to x20, and you have an 8350. Won't even need a voltage bump.

    you should consider the r9 380 instead of the gtx 960
    the gtx 960 is 128 bit. compared to the r9 380 which is 256 bit. also the 380 has more raw power

    I have the 8350 and I love it. That's about all I can say though. Never used the 8320.

    According to @Bellebite , AMD Graphics cards are 3rd world products!

    But for real, I'm not spending more than $200. A GTX 960 is what i want

    There's also considering the fact that the current gen AMD graphics is power hungry and the Crimson drivers need polishing :P

    Honestly, AMD's forte is graphics cards for gaming applications. AMD's Dual R9 390 (Devil 13) is the best GPU when paired with AMD Mantle. Nvidia's forte is mobile GPU's , mobile CPU's, and Professional GPU's; hence Nvidia Shield TV, and Nvidia Tesla. But, when it comes to CPU's AMD sucks. Just go for a Intel i5.
    No harsh feelings I have a Intel i7 and a Devil 13. :)

    Oh, and please do not rely on GPUBoss it too sucks. Real-Life benchmarks are much compelling.

    Very closed minded indeed. This is no different from prejudice. Each company has its fortes and weaknesses. Do not just judge a company based on its reputation, that is quite pitful.
