I just want to know if I should replace my PC with an I5 build? I enjoy the AMD much but the gigabyte motherboard I have hate it.

If you were to upgrade, you could go i5 or Ryzen, or used parts with something like a Xeon x3430 and a p55 board.

The x3430 i would use for a server machine only, but the Ryzen series seem decent but out too close up to date and would not be optimised for what i am trying to run

Well it would be nice if we knew what you are trying to run so somebody could make a recommendation.

i5 2500 blows 4300 out of the water. I would recommend the upgrade for anything but web browsing.

What gpu would the I5 work with?

NO, god sake no!

Pretty much all of sandy bridge and up will blow FX right out of the water, god sake stay with your i5 2500 and upgrade to a sandy or ivy bridge i7. Going to FX will be a ******* massive downgrade.

I'd rather go Haswell or Skylake

I'd say go Haswell, cheaper in all aspects and will perform just as good as Skylake.
