you are better off with a phenom ii x4 965 or a intel chip. fx sucks for gaming.

Have you actually used a fx processor before? no I doubt it so stop trolling. The fx series is fine for gaming all the internet hate these cpus get is pathetic all from disapointed intel fanboys.

im sorry. i was just overclocking my friends fx-8120 to 4ghz, plugged in my gtx670, and got 5-10 fps (or more) compared to when i was running my rig with a i7 3770k. hyperthreading was turned off btw

his specs were pretty close. we both used basic motherboards for asus, we both had the same amount of ram and we were essentially using the same computer

vishera isnt quite out yet. current benchmarks put the 8350 slightly under the 2600k (which is good because amd needs to go back up again) in workloads. no benchmarks for games yet

you should be in time though. apparantly they are to be released on october 17

yayyyyy october 17,so by 27 maybe some1 will post benchmark score of 8350 or another vishera series
