Yes, you are seeing the difference between the 4th gen Intel Core architecture and the 1st gen Bulldozer architecture. The i5 has much greater IPC than the FX-4xxx processors. But at 120 fps, there's no need to fret. I imagine you have a monitor with a 60HZ refresh rate. So you won't see more than 60 FPS anyway.

You CPU should not be bottlenecking your GPU, with exact same setup your friend should only have 5-25 FPS boost on you. However there are many things that can effect the frames. He could have a card that is faster and over-clocked and made by a different company. He could have better cooling. He can be on a lower resolution and trying to troll you. Etc, lol. So don't worry, and TBH can you really tell the difference between 120 FPS and 250 FPS?

Open task manager >performance and watch cpu usage. Do you see any cores maxed out in game? There's your answer. Ignore the overall usage all it takes is one core to max out to max out your cpu. You can't tab out to check them, you'll have to play windowed if you only have 1 monitor so you can see task manager and the game simultaneously.
