Hello,
lots of thing going on right now actually.
I bought a case (AeroCool Strike-X One), PSU (XFX PRO 550W) and a CPU Cooler.
But before buying a 965 or even an i3 3225:
Will there be a major difference in the following games (?):
Battlefield 3 ((Back to Karkand mostly) 64 Players)
Far Cry 3 Singleplayer;
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Mw3, Mw2 and CoD4 Promod;
Planetside 2;
And ofcourse the al mighty Counterstrike Source.
Are there any benchmarks out there?

I will be doing this kinda stuff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Znj0LRPeYYk

If I'll get an Core i3 I will get the MSI B75-MA Motherboard, and if I'll pick the Phenom an ASRock 970 Pro3.
I live in the Netherlands, so please don't grammar-nazi me.

Thanks and Regards,
Chimp

I got the MSI GTX 660 TF,
because it has CUDA and it's cheap.

Don't buy the i3 3225 save some money and get the i3 3220. They are basically the same processor but i3 3225 has a better integrated graphics chip.

Since the OP is using a GTX 660, the inclusion of a better integrated GPU seems to be a non-factor (i3-3220 vs. i3-3225). Performance comparisons would be similar.
