So how well can these handle games? Because I want a quality one that I'll be happy with and can play games like BF3 and DayZ on.

The AMD Phenom II X4 980 should be better than those suggested above. (ignoring overclocking)

Or what about the Phenom II X6 1100T.

With a reasonable video card it will be ok for gaming. Not great, but OK.

Would the AMD FX-8350 bottleneck the gtx 660 ti or gtx 670?

What's the best AMD CPU that won't bottleneck (or will bottleneck the least) a gtx 670 and will still fit in an AM3 Socket?

Why AMD?

Do you happen to have an AM3 board?

Yes, it is regrettable, but I don't have the newest AM3+, nor an Intel motherboard.
