Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by power at a low price i have a gtx 950 partnered up with the 8350 it has proven a deadly conbination. I have given the 8350 a slight overclock at 4300 mhz. And its purring like a kitten. Temps are low too right now its idling at 17 degrees c. I know people harp on about intel. But as directx 12 finally kicks in you shall see those 8 cores really take hold. And lets be honest why spend over double the price for the sake of a few more frames per second. Spend the extra like i did on a water cooler. And a better psu. 20 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product The product has boosted my fps up by 90-100 fps, well worth it. 03 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by THIS PRODUCT IS THE BEST this cpu is one of the best things i have ever bought i can not fault it i am very happy with it and its one i have always wanted and everybody i show it to is very impressed. i would recommend it to any body 14 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by happy I upgraded from my old fx6100 to this was well worth the purchase 14 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Fantastic processor, tackles anything thrown at it with ease, coupled with a high end graphics card, unstoppable. 13 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good processor for the price but let down by the stock cooler Bought this to replace my fx 6100 and very happy with the performance so far. The chip does run hot and the stock cooler is next to useless so i bought a hyper 212 evo which is much quieter. As usual great service from scan item delivered very fast. 30 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent buy upgraded system with this CPU. I have overclocked it to 4.5 gig using the multiplyer only. Temps on all Cores are only 16c because of my water cooling. Runs well and is very stable, 20 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by More than enough Let's just say i have never had to worry about how much i had running at any given time. No lag, no worries. 23 September 2015

Answer: 
This CPU would help with the FPS by about 10 in a game like bf4 but i think the real thing holding you back is the GPU with game like bf4. A new GPU would see more alot a performance increase in that game. That CPU is capable of playing BF4 well with a good GPU. a good 270 or 270X would be better and give prob around 20-30 FPS over current setup. You could also go with a 8320, the performance would be near the same as the 8350 with the current GPU. If you are going with 8350 or the 8320 make sure you have good cooling as during a game like bf4 you will be getting way to hot with the stock heat sink. i use a H80 with a 8350 and its around 70 at heavy loads.

Answer: 
Go with 8320, 4.4ghz and anything in the same category as 650 TI 2gig boost GPU.
Better off with AMD GPU's for battlefield and that.
If you find you have a spare £250-300 then 8350 with x60.
Make sure you have 850-1000w power-supply gold platinum.

This will offer slight improvements but for really noticeable performance gains you will really need to look at using one of the intel processors.

Answer: 
Depends what resolution you are trying to run it at and how much system RAM also. Sub HD you are probably fine... full HD or resolutions over 1920x1080 and your going to struggle at high detail settings. Have you got "mantle" on or off in settings.

With less than 4gb on graphics they say mantle should be disabled ingame. I ran BF4 at 1680x1050 on a system with similar power to yours (but Intel and nvidia).. it ran fine.

Got a new full HD capable LED monitor and it didn't like 1920x1080 at all.

Upgraded now to FX8350, R9-270x and 16gb DDR3 and it flies in BF4 at full HD.
