    I currently have an AMD fx-6200 And i'm planning on upgrading it
    And before you say ("AMD sux lol, git intel U nub") My Mother board is only compatible with an amd chip

    The AMD Fx-8350 Black Edition (8-core) is one that caught my attention. So If anybody here has used it before, Can you please tell me what you thought of it?

    Then... well buy an Intel mobo?

    Buying anything on the AM3+ platform is pretty bad right now.

    AMD sucks right now, if you want an upgrade go Intel. Wait for Zen if you want AMD. All you'd gain is 2 cores that few applications can even utilize. Oh and check my signature.

    I have a 8350 floating around in the parts bin. It wasn't bad when it came out in 2012, it's still not too bad for most uses. It would be a lot more cost effective to upgrade to either Zen and am4 or an Intel 1151 build at this point though.

    This can't be any more accurate. Yeah it's alright still but it's not worth spending money on with so many better options available now and in the near future.

    I assume you don´t want to change the motherboard, the 8350 is good but not sure if worth to change now. 2 more cores aren´t a big deal. Single core performance is slightly better. I would just save for an Intel motherboard and an I5.
