I own this processor. Upgraded from a Phenom II X4 955 and I noticed an improvement right away. Currently, I have it overclocked to 4.5GHz and it performs around the same level as an i5; sometimes better, but it's under an i7 in terms of performance. As a gamer, it performs great.
This is a great cpu, but it runs very hot. I upgraded from an x6 1100t and it feels snappier. I only did that upgrade cause after selling my x6 1100t it basically paid for the 8350. I was tempted to buy a 3770k just because it runs much cooler, but if you have an AMD setup already like me, then this is worth upgrading to.
