With those games you will see no improvement getting the 8 core FX.

I'm going to guess vanilla Skyrim. Even my 465 overclocked has a bit of a problem with all the HD mods out there.

If you are going to go with AMD then go ahead and go with the AM3+ socket. AMD is already EOLing some of the Phenom II's.
