PC Upgrade

In the next week I'm going to replace the motherboard, processor and RAM in my home PC.
I've got 3 different CPUs to choose from, which one I get will be decided later.
AMD FX-8350 8 core
Intel i5-3470 4 core
AMD FX-6300 6 core
All with 8GB of RAM.
The 8350 and 3470 are around the same price, with the 6300 being quite a lot cheaper. The benchmark puts the 8350 highest but the i5 does better on some tasks.

My current PC build:
AMD Phenom X4 9550 quad core 2.2 GHz (since October 2008)
4GB DDR2 800 RAM (since October 2008)
Asus M2A74-AM motherboard
ATI Radeon HD-5400 graphics
300GB SATA HDD (I had a 1TB but put that in the NAS and used this, bought in 2006)
250GB SATA HDD (since October 2008)
2 x SATA DVD writers (one old and one new)
FireWire PCI card
USB 3.0 PCI card
Be Quiet PSU
