I've built a few rigs based on this processor (I use an FX6300 myself)
This is the one to go for if you want an FX 8 core CPU. The FX8350 is clocked higher and costs more, but as the multiplier is unlocked on all the FX cpu's you can simply increase the multiplier on the motherboard and match the clock speed of the 8350.

The FX8320 offers potent and improved performance over the bulldozer chips, in some cases quite a bit better than expected. Single threaded performance is better, but where you really feel the extra power is in intensive applications such as rendering and video encoding work. This is the ideal processor for heavy lifting tasks that require more cores.

Quick good and bad points

Pros:
+ Outstanding bang per buck
+ Excellent multi threaded performance, quite stunning in some applications (esp video work)
+ Improved single threaded over bulldozer
+ Great potential for overclocking
+ Newer instructions: Support for AVX1.1, FMA3, F16C, Bit Manipulation and Trailing Bit Manipulation instructions
+ Turbo core 3.0 improved over previous version
+ Full 8MB lv 2 and lv3 cache

Cons:
- Power hungry with heavy overclocking
- Stock cooler too small, even if you're not overclocking get something better (like a coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus - one example lots of choices) and is too noisy
- Would prefer 95w v 125w
- Mixed performance in some applications, it's very strong for video (punches well above it's price v the Intel equivalents), in some applications it's not as good as an i5

The newer "piledriver" offers some enhancements over the first generation
Improved FPU and integer scheduling, and better branch prediction and pre-fetching.

Just to share my experience with the 8320, they ship with very high stock voltages, which is a contributor to higher temperatures and fan noise. After playing about with overclocking (Played an hour of BF4 at 4.4GHz on stock voltage of 1.33v, before it crashed. Another notch or two on Vcore and it would've been fine) and realising the chip was more than enough at stock speed for my needs, I decided to explore undervolting to reduce temperature.

At different core speeds I reduced Vcore in increments until the system became unstable. I found that running at 3.9GHz (no turbo) at 1.15xxx (can't remember the exact number but it was one notch above 1.1500v) volts the system remained stable. This reduced temperatures markedly, and thus fan noise too. The side of my case, where the cpu is closet was also noticeably cooler to the touch. I've been running it like this with no problems for some months now.

Give it a try if you don't need screaming fast speeds. You can always turn it up when you do.

Bought as part of my sons new PC build. He's mainly using for minecraft and a Cinema 4D project, and he's been very happy with frame rates and rendering speed

After debating whether to build my new PC between an i5/7 and this FX8320 I'm really glad I opted for the latter. Ok so it won't win against Intel in benchmarks, but in the real world where you use you PC to work, surf and game, this processor is a solid buy.
Good bang/pound and is unlocked so if you want to overclock you can do so with the correct cooling.
Mines idling at around 35degrees using the stock cooler, pushes to around 56degrees when under heavy load.
This processor is best suited to multiple threaded applications ie video/photo editing.
As the next gen consoles are both AMD 8 core processors, it means games will start to utilise multiple cores, which will be very interesting with the FX8320 to see if things improve as games utilise more cores.
Why did I choose the AMD over Intel? It's good to back the under dog once in a while, take a punt, you'll be surprised and start to realise a good processor is not solely based on a higher benchmark score.

It currently does what it's supposed to. I've overclocked it to just below 4GHz with ASUS M5A98 R2.0 & CM Hyper 212 Evo. With no issues so far, would recommend, for sure.
