Oh noes!!!!! i know this doesnt mean much but i strongly advise against any Haswell chip. If you are a gamer and thats what you mainly use your PC for i would defiantly pick that 8320/sabertooth setup. Its going to save you money and you wont notice a 1 fps difference. AMD FX chips OC like a beast and with that board and the right cooler you can easily do that and you wont have to de-lid your cpu a year from now like so many other haswell owners that cant keep their cpu cool. Just google "haswell d" and delid will be at the top. save the money and put a nice air cooler, like the evo 212, on that 8320 and OC that thing to 4+Ghz and don't look back. Im a huge advocate for people getting the processor that is right for them and from a gaming stand point AMD is just as good as any intel. if you do tons of 3d rendering, youtube videos and files compression converting or whatever then go intel just not a haswell. Dont mean to come off as an ass to CTurbo or your Endersteam just want to make sure you get all the info.

An i5 4670k at stock speeds will smoke an overclocked FX8320. Nobody will ever need to de-lid any cpu under normal overclocking.
