My System Specs

Default FX-62 Vs E8400

Which between both is more powerful for gaming ?

Striker extreme went capoute and found a FX-62 for cheap with M2N32-SLi so i could go that route instead of finding a S775 board

Intel i7 3930K / 16GB Corsair Vengence DDR3-2400
Asus X79 Rampage Extreme Black Edition / EVGA GTX 770

Corsair 480GB SSD / 1TB WD Black

IN WIN 303 / EVGA NEX750 Gold

Looks like even the E6700 will beat the FX-62.

The e8400 is going to be the faster choice for sure. Your call if its worth trying to find a board for the extra performance.
