Hello, at the moment I have this:
Model: Packard Bell iXtreme M3720
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q8300 @ 2.50GHz
Graphics Card: Asus GeForce GTX 560 810MHz - (fully updated drivers
Power Supply: OCZ 500w stealthxstream
and since i've had this new gtx 560 (previously had gt 240) I have seen a small fps increase in games such as Call of Duty Mw3, Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, and Team Fortress 2. However smaller games such as Payday the Heist, CSS and Magicka have increased a lot.
What im asking is if I upgrade to a decent intel i3 or i5, will I see a big fps different.
Also to mention in BF3, no matter how low the graphics are the resolution, i still remain with the same fps. I can play on high settings and low settings and see no fps difference.
At the moment I get this FPS
MW3: 35fps - 60fps (rarely gets to 60) (Ran at 1600x900)
Battlefield 3: 25fps - 40fps (Ran at 1280x800)
Team Fortress 2: 35fps(in battle) to 80fps (no matter if maxed out or not) (Ran at 1600x900)
I feel the fps i get at the moment is extremely low for a gtx 560 and i was worried that my q8300 was bottlenecking but when i upgraded I was not expecting to see such as huge bottleneck and low fps in games.
Also sorry if i posted this in the wrong section.
