My System Specs

Yeah BF3 is most gpu dependent, unless you are doing online multiplayer with lots going on.

The other common deal not really included is the i5 3470. If you don't OC its a great deal IMO as they are often onsale for $180 and could be PM to get it down to just over $170. That said you can guess where its going to fall in the chart given its minimal frequency reduction from the 3550.

What is interesting is that in newer games that take advantage of multi core/threads, AMD's CPUs are actually doing pretty well for once. You notice it in games like Crysis 3 or Battlefield 3.

Whats interesting is the FX6300 $130ish does not too bad and fairly well most of the time at it's price point.

it seems to me that these charts are limited in their usefulness sincemany of these chips will overclock nicely and easily and would provide more value to the buyer and as a result higher performance. Can anyone do this over with overclocked version of the obvious ones? the k series for Intel and all of the amd chips?
