Bottle Necking a HD 7870 with a i3 3220?

the question is the title

I guess an argument could be made for games that scale well with more threads available (such as MP BF3), but it seems pretty balanced to me. Is your framerate unacceptable?

i wouldnt say so, but if your buying atm i would much higher recommend something like the phenom X4 or FX- 6300

it is good but u may have problem with cpu based games like crysis ,skyrim
