Question about AMD CPU's

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I know the AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE is cannot perform as well as the intel i7 but after looking at some benchmarks, it gets some really low scores, is this quad core really that bad for gaming? Is it going to bottleneck my crossfired 6850's in modern games to a noticeable extent?
