Like Viral said, pretty much any OC'd high end single SB CPU setup will drill your glorified benchmarking box where gaming is concerned.
Gamers want the fastest available processor and that will be the 3960. I'd hoped for a little more but it is still reasonable and we've yet to see proper benchmarks.
