Question

Upgrading AMD to Intel

I am upgrading my AMD 6350 CPU, Mobo and RAM(DDR3) I have been looking around for a good i5 but they are all pretty expensive. I'm looking for something around $200 maybe? Is that even possible to get a good upgraded from my AMD CPU at that price?

Improvements?

Right now I'm running a AMD 6350, GTX 970 and 8gb of DDR3 memory if I were to upgrade to one of those Intel processors that you listed with a new mobo and Ram. What kind of improvements would I see, gaming and general. Is my current CPU bottlenecking my GPU? Thanks for the help

just a fyi - might need to add a new operating system if running oem/system builders or upgraded the os from oem/system builders.
