Just now I have the FX-4100 and am planning on upgrading to an FX-8350 but would like to get some information first(upgrading due to a bottleneck with the 280X). I don't plan on moving to Intel as that would require me to also buy in a new MOBO.


My first plan was to buy an 8350 but reading about online i've seen people say the 8320 is better to buy because you can OC it(If i was to OC it would be with the hyper 212 evo). Looking about i've also seen the 8370 and 8370E for the same price as the 8350 so should i get that instead?


Secondly, would this upgrade last me at least 2-3 years(Performance wise)?


Any information is much appreciated and thanks in advance.

I'm still running an FX-8150.  I would check to make sure your motherboard supports the processors you are looking at before going any further.  My Asus Sabertooth 990FX only supports some of those CPU's for some reason.  The 8370 and the "E" versions of those processors are refreshes of the already existing CPU's.  The 8370 is not that big of a leap in terms of performance over the 8350, if you can get one at or around the same price, that would be a good deal.  The "E" series of processors are aimed at power efficiency, however, in some tests the "E" processors can be slightly slower than the other versions and don't always have large power savings.
