I already know intel is better in single threaded applications which would be most games.

My question is, in games like assassin's creed black flag or Crysis 3, how many more average fps would I get if my gtx 770 was paired with an i5 instead of an 8320? Both with a mild OC.

Ahmm.. a lot more. in cpu intensive gaming. The I5 cores are doing way more per clock cycle. Even if the FX was using all it's cores they would be around 35% efficiency.

See these results in BF4

Not much significant differnce btw i5 2500k and fx8350
But i5 4670k definitely performs 10-11% better than 2500k in single threaded applications and uses less power.

It depends entirely on the game. Some games are CPU intensive like Skyrim and the BF series multiplayer modes. Other games do just as well with just about any CPU you have and are almost completely dependent on your graphics card.

In general an FX 8xxx overclocked to 4.5Ghz is roughly equal to a Haswell based i7 at stock when it comes to gaming.

the 4670k ain't a 2500k, nor is the 8320 a 3850

Then i5 oc'ed is higher still, right?

A 4670k is roughly 15% faster clock for clock than an i5 2500k. Maybe as much as 20% in certain applications. But the average is about 15%.

intel for strictly gaming. if you have the slightest interest in modeling in 3D, editing , rendering, streaming, then go FX 8320/50. If it means being able to afford a better GPU, then by all means,clearly FX 8320/50. Games are more GPU bound than CPU bound. IF you will be using the same GPU either way (say it was a gift) then the i5 4670K will be better off.

I agree being a gamer solely, with the odd bit of codec work for movie viewing when i need a break from gaming.

So if the 8320 is somewhat close to an i5 2500k and an i5 4670 is about 20% better than a 2500k we're talking an average of about 10 fps (In a game where I currently get 50-60 fps ) lost by going with the 8320. I only asked because I wanted to get a ball park of what kind of performance I'd given up by saving about 100 bucks (including mobo, it was a brand new build) Personally that 100 bucks would be better off buying an ssd or saved up for a 780 later on. Thanks for the replies guys :D

you should be more concerned with lowest FPS.

Side note: i thought you only played two games, not one.

IMPO, you gave up more than 100 bucks.
