    I don't think you would see a visible bottleneck in majority of the games. Although, in some CPU intensive games you can see some FPS lower than the similarly priced intel CPU (i5 3570k). Then, this difference may not even be distinguishable. Overall, i really like this new Piledriver CPU, it isn't a bad deal for its price. If you are worried, you can invest in a good thermal paste + CPU cooler and overclock your 8350, no more worries :)

    Yes, it will.


    You will probably need to overclock on some of the more cpu bound games, also depending on your monitors resolution.
