I have a MSI B75MA-P45, Socket-1155 Motherboard in my computer and im wondering if its possible to put an AMD processor in it?
The processor i was thinking was the AMD FX-8350 8-Core Processor ;)

NO. AMD doesn't fit into an Intel based mobo. You would need a CPU that is designed to fit into the socket 1155 based mobo. The i5 3350p (~$165-180 depending on where you buy it) would be comparable to the FX 8350 price wise.

Why not just get an i5-3570k?

That would be the best option, but I was assuming the $180 (price of FX 8350) or so would be his budget limit, but I don't know for sure.
