In my opinion the 8350 outperforms intel in multithreaded apps quite nicely for the price. For single threaded performance intel will be king for the foreseeable future. Amd does have a very competitive platform. I need more single threaded performance and am very happy with my 2500k for that regard. If I needed more multithreaded I would definitely get a 8350.

Agreed you 2500K is great and not worth changing over to this CPU, its more so for us Phenom II users that wish to catch up to those SB users
I think over all this new CPU is a good buy. For me personally its a good upgrade, ive had a 990FX board sitting here for almost 6 months waiting for a good CPU to drop into it and this for me is what ill be getting.
