I'm looking to upgrade my current processor as it's not good enough to run a lot of games in my library. The socket is a compatible AM3+ but the 8350 is not there on the list so I would like to know if it is compatible before I make the purchase.
There are two versions of that motherboard: version 1.x (white socket) is not compatible with the socket AM3+ FX- processors; version 3.1 (black socket) is compatible with some of the socket AM3+ processors. Consult the list in the link:
GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Socket AM3+ - AMD 880G - GA-880GM-USB3 (rev. 3.1)
It looks like the 95W FX-6300 Vishera CPU is supported, but 125W FX-4350 is not supported, so probably the FX-8350 is not supported either. You might try the FX-6300, FX-8300, or FX-8370E, which are all 95W CPU.
