Hey guys how's it going? We'll as you know Rome 2 is coming out soon and im looking to perhaps upgrade parts of my PC so that i can experience its greatness at the highest level possible. I can already run Shogun 2 on Ultra graphics and such and its fine if their's less than 10k people on the field at once, but once i start getting into the 15-20k range of people i lag and its pretty much screen shots at the 40-50k range of people.
i want to MAXIMIZE my total war experience but im not sure what part needs upgrading. I'd probably guess its the CPU but thats why im here to ask you guys!

Well heres my Comp specs.
Case:Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower

Hard drives: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB / Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM

Gfx Card: EVGA 02G-P4-2670-KR GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit

PSU:Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-650 650W

Ram:G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

Mobo:GIGABYTE GA-Z77-D3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s

CPU: I5-3570k Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz
thank you!

Well there really isn't a better gaming CPU out right now than the 3570k, the new 4670k is only slightly faster, and the i7's big feature, hyperthreading, don't really help game performance. Odds are you are hitting a CPU bottleneck in Shogun 2, all you can really do is try overclocking your CPU. That will probably help performance in Shogun 2 and Rome 2 when it comes out.
