I play games alot on my PC. I play battlefield 3, the sims, shogun total war 2, and will be buying new high end games in the future. I see the 6 core CPU will OC to 4.1ghz? So to me it sounds the best for gaming?
Neither the Bulldozer is a pretty poor gaming CPU and the so called six core CPU is probably one of the worst performers. If you have to go AMD for your gaming build I would go with a Phenom II quad core CPU. The 965 BE can still be found at some places like New Egg and Tiger Direct and can be found in good numbers on Ebay.
