Currently running an A8-6600K quadcore AMD processor with an MSI FM2 motherboard.

My budget for an upgrade can be 350. Looking to get an Intel CPU that can run BF4 at decent settings. Trying to play it right now and it runs with tons of lag.

That's not a bad budget, get an I5-4570 and any of the $100 boards are decent if you pick an ASUS/MSI/Asrock board.

Hmm for 20 bucks more wouldn't a 4670 be better? If not then can you compare them for me? I'm not too knowledgeable when it comes to CPUs.

Since you currently have an APU, I've got to ask, do you have a dedicated video card?
