Build suggestors should avoid referencing this review

Tom's Hardware - FX-4170 vs i3 3220

Avoid using this new review as a reference because it tests exclusively with the HD 7970 GPU. This means that the comparisons are not representative of real world scenarios since I can't imagine many people who would pair a $400 GPU with a ~$125 CPU (or even have the budget to go with a GPU above $200 given their CPU choice will cost closer to $125).

It also forgets to account the FX-6100 which costs $120.

I just thought I'd point that out before you all begin.

One thing that surprises me though... the 4170's performance is exceeding the 3220 in Starcraft II FPS. Settings specifics? Optimizations should usually put the Intel processors ahead.

eh..being that Tom's banned me for overclocking..I wasn't too keen on them anyway..now it's just to the point of realizing they're worthless. I take 0 stock in anything published @ Tom's.
