Value is core to this arrangement, and being able to put together a decent AMD CPU/mobo combo for less than a Core i5 setup means that you get a good chunk of cash to spend on your graphics card.

how did the i5 win if 1) it was a tie 2) the 8370 is overclockable (how did the i5 even get a score, its not even manually overclockable, all you get is turbo boost) and 3) in synthetic benchmarks (which is all this site cares about) the 8370 won in 4 of them by a large margin? bias?
