The 2600 is a much better choice.

Short answer: no


Long answer: noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo


An 8350k requires a pricy z370 board and at least an h7 (windale 6 is preferred) to overclock. A 2600 is much better value (doesn't have the IPC/clock speed advantage that the 8350k has but makes up for it in the extra cores and threads, which will help in CPU intensive games and multitasking among other things).
