Depends on the game and CPU overclock, in BF3/BF4 probably around 50-70%. Upgrading to FX83xx would fix this. Regardless it is the massive upgrade from your GTX260...

@Hotwheels: Since you were interested in difference between 1100 and 1150MHz, I get 10861 graphics score in 3dmark11 @1150/1500MHz.

Nice,another 300pts .I might try and push it if i can squeeze it under 1.20V .I'll probably have to tone down the memory to 1500mhz like yours.I'm on 13.10 drivers now,downgraded from 13.11 but the usage is still the same.I think it's Win8 thing that drops to 95% usage in Heaven Benchmark.In 3Dmark11,it's 99% pegged.

Ok doesn't sound too bad for now I guess. I was planning on getting an 8350 sometime next year when i find a good deal. I'm somewhat concerned though because I just realized my motherboard still uses PCIE 2.0 and a 7950 is PCIE 3.0. I didn't even know they had a new PCIE version out. Will this seriously effect the performance in any way?

I decided to run Unigine Valley Benchmark and i expected 99% pegged but that's not what happend: 96-99% usage ,not 99% pegged.Results on ExtremeHD:
FPS:50.5fps
Score:2,112pts
Min.Fps:23.2fps
Max Fps:96.5fps
Is that normal? I really want to install Win7 now and test it on it because as you know Win8 uses CPU and GPU differently and last time i had 99% pegged on Heaven and Valley was on Win7.
