Looking at options for new build, currently on old Intel C2Q 9650, which is still running everything I throw at it.

While checking out AMD cpu's came across this for the FX-8 Eight Core 9590:

The reviews I've seen are sort of positive, except that they are critical on a few areas: Power / Heat and Single thread performance and the cost, and the comparisons are against the i7 4770 which has fewer cores and costs less than half.

Yea the FX-9000 series is a joke, Intel Ivy Bridge and Haswell parts kick their butts at a fraction of the cost. However the FX-8350 can reach 4.5ghz regularly and is only $200, throw in a high powered closed loop liquid cooler for $75-$100 and you'll be set.
