Just because a game can use 8 threads doesn't necessarily mean an FX 8320 is going to beat a 2500k or 4670k.

I was in the same predicament, and decided that the upgrade to PD wasn't significant enough. So I just waited around for a dirt cheap Phenom II X6, and ended up jumping on a 4670k + mobo for ~$200 off craigslist. No regrets biggrin.gif

eight core.
