You do realize that saying X is better than Y because the benchmarks say so, is NO LESS an opinion than saying X is better than Y because is just feels that way, right?The problem with all this "Benchmark" toting fanaticism is that it is all too superficial. Saying i5 is 20% faster than FX is just as subjective as saying that FX "feels" 20% faster than i5, because the numbers sometimes just dont scale that way in the real world.Assuming the 20% figure is accurate and may...

No... Just, no.Even this LOCKED i7 is still as much as $150 MORE than an Unlocked FX-8320. Have you not learned anything in the past 20 pages!?!?!?They say ignorance is not having the correct data to draw an accurate conclusion, and stupidity is having the inability to reason or understand that data. The data has been provided, so are you choosing not to understand it, or are you just trolling?It's called Microcenter. You know, that place that the intel camp likes to...

No doubt! Beats the crap out of 212 Evo I threw out. They've come out twice now within the last 3 months at $10 Shipped AMIR. The key to get them to perform at this level though is the TIM. I tried the stuff that came with it, and although not bad, I still managed to drop another 5-6 degrees over it using Prolimateks PK-1.http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/114376/tigerdirect---zalman-optima-120mm-sharks-fin-blade-cpu-cooler

Ambient temps were a little warmer than usual at the 2advanced household, but temps remained stable (54-56, 57 Peak). I also needed a little extra on the voltage to get it to pass 10 times (0.020V). And I managed between 91 - 92.6 Gflops. Like I mentioned earlier, this Cooler + PK-1 Tim combination is a BEAST. Not bad for a $10 Cooler right? Please tell me I turned you into a beleiber!

http://www.g4tv.com/games/top-100-pc-games/Looking at this list above, WOW ranks 10th and Star Craft ranks 12th. The top 5 titles are;-Need for Speed Most wanted-Star Wars: The Old Republic-Defiance-Call of Duty Black OPS 2-and Diablo 3All newer titles (2011-2013). IIRC, AMD CPUS handle all these games well.But the point remains; even in situations where people have come in here asking for advice on a gaming rig, (even Gaming Evolved Titles) you're usually in there...

I noticed that too, but Linus also had similar results when comparing the 8350 to a 3570 when overclocked to their respective MAX OC's. I dont have that game, otherwise, Id post my own results with each system.
