OC'd the 465 a little bit as well and I play SC2 , Rift, Metro, and other newer games on high/ultra settings with no issues what so ever.
Remember Not all cpu are made equal. Most 955 needs 1.475-1.55v for 4.0ghz.
FYI
My sig rig can play SC2 , Rift, Metro, and other newer games on high/ultra settings with no issues what so ever too.

Are you high? The 955 C2 needs that, not the C3.

Get the 955, unless you bench like most of us, you can't tell the difference mostly.
