Zambezi vs Sandy Bridge
I'm trying to put together a system recommendation for a buddy. He wants something in the $500-$600 range and mainly so he can play Star Wars: The Old Republic. I would ideally like to keep the CPU/mobo comb under $250 combined, so I'm looking at either the AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz chip or the Intel Core i3-2120 Dual-Core 3.3GHz. I'd like to bench compare them but haven't seen any numbers (andandtech doesn't have the Zambezi yet). I read that the Zambezi is a step behind the higher level Sandy Bridge chips but I would think it would likely out-perform the 2120...?

Also, would going with a video card like a GTX 550 or 560 end up being a bottle-neck on this kind of system?

Thanks.
