. Otherwise its probably cheaper to go abroad for a day and buy it closeby I'd wager.
As for the original question "what will bottleneck it" it depends too much on what game youre playing really. Most games can probably run fine on a decent I3, while some games with better multi-core support will run better on a 3770K than a 3570K for example (basically slightly bottlenecked by the 3570K).
The best bang/buck for high end systems is probably the 3570k, but great deals on FX-8350 is interesting too, and waiting for haswell will most likely drop the prices on IVY bridge processors a bit
I did that so many times and it never convinced them. They always think that it's dangerous whenever doing transaction in the cyber world especially with a thousand bucks! Unfortunately, its a NO for now.
For your information, I've many upcoming games in my list. Arma 3, DayZ Standalone, Battlefield 4, COD Ghost, GTA 5, The Elder Scrolls Online, Path Of Exile, Metro: Last Light, PS2 Emulator, Assassin's Creed IV, Dark Souls 2, Watch Dogs and so on. Of course the older one such as Battlefield 3, DayZ Mod, Skyrim and stuff like that. I know that a GTX 680 is capable running them on ultra plus MSAA but how bout the cpu??
I won't go for AMD cpus at the moment and of course I don't have the time waiting for Haswell.
