When you say most? You have an example? I mostly play Call Of Duty.. But I play Skyrim, Watch Dogs, Fifa, Day Z, and Mafia as well..

Overclock your i7 920, which will ensure that nothing will be bottlenecked. Run CPU-Z to see if it's a D0 stepping revision. Most of them reach 4.2GHz on high-end air with 1.4 Vcore.

Absolutely. I used to own a D0 overclocked to 4.2 GHz. I gave it to my nephew. He's heavy into gaming on that rig with a pair of GTX 760's in SLI. He's never run into any bottlenecks.

Although the 920 has a locked multiplier, overclocking is accomplished by increasing the base clock. There are several good overclocking guides you can Google for the i7 920. :sol:
