Wat? What has the GPU got to do with CPU lol

What's the average OC % you get out of a AMD CPU? 20%? (4GHz->5GHz seems to be very rare already for the FX CPUs)

My pal is running his FX-8320 in 5.2 Ghz and has no problems what so ever. o.o

Thats wrong. They are close in gaming. Maybe in some rts situation intel is way ahead but a 6300 is enough for gaming. Also ivy dont oc that much. I have seen i5 to stuck at 4.5 no matter what. You will not notice a difference if you move from a i5 to a 6300 except if you dont play and just stare at the fps meter

Ivy is better than SB is unless we're talking about SB-E. 4.5ghz is easy on ivy and most should be able to do 4.8 or 4.8. With the same sort of cooling SB will go up to 4.9 or 5.0.

And yes those aren't my 24/7 clocks because I don't need anything that high when I use an FX. I normally run 5ghz just for the heck of it but I can put the system through stress tests at 5.35-5.4ghz. Even cine stresses all the cores to the max so that OC would be perfectly fine gaming wise.

Vishera does OC well, it starts out a bit higher than sandy or ivy but ends up a bit higher as well.

i think that has to do more with drivers than the CPU itself... if you look the top 30heaven scores there is a guy with Quad 7970 on the top 10... and he has a FX8350... u can do the CF but dont expect a 100% GPU usage in all games which is not... hopefully u will get arround 70 to 80% and worst case scenario 50 or 60% gpu usage.

This. And just to clarify, bottle necking is when a gpu's perfromance is limited by the cpu and vice versa correct? Both Vishera and Sandy/Ivy Bridge are good cpu's hands down. Zambezi is good, but not as good, and should be cheaper. Intel is on top with the 3570k and the 3770k. I guess X79 would be better? But im not a benchmarking man. Im a "see for yourself when you got the money," kind of guy
