The i5-3570k only costs about £15 more (£20 more if you go for boxed rather than OEM). It's a faster gaming CPU, and will consume a fraction of the power of an FX-8350, the effect on your electricity bill is something i'd personally advise factoring in. As far as I'm concerned it's simply a far superior choice.
FUD. Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge CPU's and boards are interoperable.
