I'm a huge AMD fanboy, but man... they really failed with the FX chips. I was really sad when the benchmarks came out. I've posted as much on CP before. The i5-2500k is faster than the FX 8170 and we're talking about stock frequencies. The 2500k is a breeze to OC to 4 Ghz (with no need for a liquid cooling solution either).
Here are some benchmarks
(yes, the FX 4100 is there, it's just way down in the list). You can look at the other charts on that website if you feel like it.
As far as GW2 goes, I'm still enjoying it.
