Will there be a huge difference?

Will there be a huge difference between this two builds?
Mostly looking into hardcore cpu intensive games like Multiplayer games, example a 64 man server in Battlefield 3.

More about will huge difference
  1. I'm currently running a 965BE at 4ghz and the gtx 460v2 (1gb) sli at 900mhz and it does over 90fps in a 64 player room only at low setting tho
    other parts: 8gb ram, 990fx sabertooth, 212+, corsair tx750, samsung 840 250gb ssd,

    I don't have a gtx 670 to see if it's cpu bottleneck

    edit: sorry forgot to read question, answer would be I don't know if there's big difference
  2. The i5 will own that 965 BE and THERE IS A BIG BIG DIFFERENCE.

    please provide charts to back this up. I'd love to see them.
  4. Best answer
    Bf3 multiplayer is very much cpu heavy. But an oc 965 should still be above 60fps. The 965 is nearly 4 years old, if you want to get it, get it used, save money.
  5. translation: what is green and red?
  6. Green should be avg and red is minimum
  7. For the value, the X4 965 is great.

    If you live near a Microcenter you could grab a FX-6300 + 970 Extreme 4 = $170.
    That's a steal!
