My System Specs

Default

Do it. Performance is similar or better than a 3770K in most multi-threaded applications (i.e. video editing) and it isn't too far off when gaming. When overclocked, I could see it having very similar gaming performance to a stock 3570K. And, if we already have an AM3+ platform, and the CPU itself is ~$200, it's definitely the best deal.

I'm just waiting for an extra $200+tax to find its way to me before making my move.
