Obviously. That's why there's the i3. We were talking about matching up processors with a more powerful GPU in the future then he might as well skip AMD altogether. As the PD/BD reviews have shown, that's just not true. AMD CPUs will still bottleneck single GPUs in CPU-dependent scenarios. Not even with the ultra-high end; something as low as a HD 5870 is bottlenecked by AMD in games such as WOW. The i5 does not cost much more (if at all) than an overclocked AMD setup once you include the cost of the HSF and electrical consumption.
