I'm looking for the best bang gaming wise, not concerned about anything else.
Games I play are mostly FPS. I have a 6870 for my gpu.
Lets say my budget is $300 for a board, chip and ram. Whats the best I can get?
Why would you downgrade? As SugarJ suggested, upgrade your gpu and or get a ssd.
960 clocks easily to 4.0ghz, I don't think there is any AMD mainstream offering that will match it's performance at 4.0 at gaming and or anything else. I would NOT recommend doing so.
