FX 8350 will get you the closest. It'll perform slightly better in programs that support hyperthreading and take advantage of it, but when it comes to gaming the i5 3570k will outperform it.

The FX-8320 is $25 cheaper and still performs roughly the same with the FX-8350, but yeah those CPU's excel at multi-threaded programs. Unfortunately most programs and games only utilize one or two cores so it defeats the purpose; but it's a nice, cheap, powerful CPU.
