Totally varies.

However, all games will look great. You should of course not simply put on HIGH put carefully tweak the quality settings to maintain your desired FPS goal. Such as:

1) VSYNC on at 60FPS (stay above 60FPS at all times)

2) Adaptive VSYNC at 60FPS (RadeonPro has a similar feature you can force on I believe.)

3) VSYNC OFF and FPS at 40FPS to 50FPS average (screen tearing but less lag and not as demanding on hardware)

Depending on the game, High to Ultra at 1080p.

Slap a good cooler and mild OC on that CPU and you should be good. You'll need a better motherboard though...HMmmmm...in fact...I would check and make sure that motherboard in your OP supports the 8320 and has at least 6+1 VRM with 8+2 preferred for an 8 core.

For $30 more, you could get this board instead:

That will be MUCH better for an 8320.
