Most games are GPU limited anyways...

I KNOW the the I5 2500K is a much faster processor and will return higher benchmarks. My point is that in the real world, under real conditions, it's much harder to tell the difference.
I don't know why people say that about FPS that's entirely not true what so ever especially in FPS games... higher fps = the better.
i5 3570K @ 4.5GHZ // MSI-G45 // 16GB Corsair Vengance Blue // XFX 7970 // SilverStone Raven 03

SteelSeries 6Gv2 // SteelSeries Kana White // Steelseries Siberiasv2 White // BenQ XL2410T // Samsung 2233rz
