Crysis 2 is rubbish as a benchmark really. You can't use the DX11 patch because it borks the game and you don't really want to use the vanilla graphics as they are DX9 due to it being a poor console port.
The perfect CPU for specifically games right now would be the i5 2500k. The cycles per clock per core makes buying any AMD CPU worthless.
This is extremely true as it's obvious they needed to cater to a wider audience...
Well, I mean it's not great but better hardware will run it better, so there's "some" merit to testing.
On topic: Yeah there is ABSOLUTELY no reason to really overclock a CPU right now unless you got some heavy multitasking going on right now...
I have a i7-930, which is the dead LGA 1366 socket, and it runs two GTX 670s in SLI perfectly fine. I personally think I might just can the second GTX 670 cause I really don't need it as I too only run 1080p....
