I got swept under the excitement of upgrading... And the reason as to why I am changing to Intel is so I get better support, and though my 8150 is great! (well aware of it) I am also changing to Intel in hope to avoid all the hassle with my Sabertooth 990FX, which could also be a problem with my SilverStone GoldStrider 1200w power supply... I won't go into details in this message. Besides I'm selling my other stuff to a friend so that he might get an awesome pc for less money.

I think you are underestimating the FX lineup, they aren't good as Intel offerings, but they arent THAT much worse that they need to be dumped.
I am not underestimating the FX series. I ****ing love them! I'm just of issues with AM3+ supported motherboards. I had a SABERTOOTH 990FX r1.0 later on I got a CROSSHAIR V FORMULA, which also had major issues. Like the alarm for my cpu cooler (CoolIT vantage) kept going off for no reason. I then returned it and bought a Sabertooth 990FX r2.0 (Because I sold the old one) Which has minor issues. Every time I disconnect the power source, the LED turns off and after 5 seconds turns on for half a minute.
