My E5300 OCed gets about the same benchmark scores as my E8400 @ stock 3.0GHz.

I had a 9800GTX+ and E8400 and played Crysis on everything set to high or very high (Post-Processing set to high), AAx2, and got an average of 35fps.

With a 4870, you'll probably get 40fps average with my settings, and more or less depending on how you tweak it.

My 4850 bottlenecks my E8500 @ 3.8. The wolfdale is ~ 80% usage during most intense games such as fallout 3 and I can get kinda choppy at certain points. I do believe your 4870 would be bottlenecking, sir.
