That'll turn into 20 FPS or higher difference if he decided to SLI. The Phenoms run too quickly into a bottleneck.
As for Metro 2033, that's assuming you're comparing a Core i3 2100, a $125 CPU, to a Phenom II X4 970/975, a $190 CPU. Compare a Core i5 2400 to that or a Phenom II X6 1090T and the difference is suddenly 5-10 FPS. If you spend $30 more for a 2500K and compare average OC to average OC of the 2500K and 1090T, and you'll be looking most of the time for a difference higher than 10 FPS. And that CAN make a difference in gaming, especially at 1920x1080.Edited by LOL_Wut_Axel - 4/12/11 at 6:16pm
