Default New CPU

Currently I have a AMD FX(tm)-4100 Quad-Core Processor and ive noticed some games like train simulator 2012 lags (not alot but enough to be noticed) I have 8GB of RAM so i think thats enough but i would like to get a new CPU the one that i was thinking about it AMD FX-8350 FX-Series Eight-Core Processor Edition, Black AM3 FD8350FRHKBOX which you can find at Intel Core i5-3570 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500 BX80637i53570 - Newegg.com but i dont know if it will be good enough or if i should consider something else that is better i am looking to spend around 200 on this so if someone could tell me if thats a good cpu and if it will work with my current computer also if you want to add me on skype and help me out a bit more my skype is "Isquarey"

I second the "What graphics card are you using" question.

Well if your looking to buy the AMD FX-8350 and a new GPU you won't be able to do that in under $200, You'd be wanting to stretch your budget just $100 more for a decent GPU, What motherboard are you currently using?
