And if you have FS Extreme then you have FS Ultra (both part of 3DMark Advanved Edition)

I'd say you are fine with what you have. If you did move up to an 8 core Vishera, you would need a better cooler to be able to get enough of an overclock to noticeably out perform the 1055.
Probably the most noticeable advantage would be that the Vishera 8 core is a demon in the desktop environment, much quicker than anything else I've used, 8 thread capable I 7's included.
With the 8320 at this stage, why not? I think the Akasa 965 was intended for 775 Quads, if I'm not mistaken? It's only natural as the resolution goes up, the need for the dankest CPU goes down, and Vishera won't exactly suffer in a multithreaded environment.
@Awarn, I'd suggest getting an H220X and then expanding the loop if required, say when you get a really nice card. AMD announced a new architecture and unified socket a few months back, so I'd place my bets on Q4 2015 to Q2 2016, and finally glorious DDR4.Edited by X-Alt - 6/23/15 at 6:30am
