An overclocked SB will already beat your setup in real world gaming benchmarks. For people who build the best they can for what they mainly use their PC for this will obviously be the best setup around for gamers. I too want to see some real world benchmarks, especially in games to see if it's actually worth it over SB.

I'm still hoping Bulldozer provides good all round performance for the money, but we'll see.
