Hi, I just wanted to ask the people here if after my time, effort and money spent; if this was gonna show me a noticeable improvement. I was happy with my gaming performance before but noticed large drops in FPS so decided to swap out everything. I know a lot will say I should have gone with intel but this was what i decided to go with for personal reasons and just wondering if these upgrades are gonna get rid of my bottleneck. I play games that are CPU intensive like Skyrim, Crysis, Splinter Cell Conviction, and Hitman Absolution. I usually get around 40-60 because i game in 1080p and don't use AA. I don't demand Ultra settings on every game, just less drops. I only noticed the 20 fps drop when looking over a broad portion of the map like in ACIII when you get to boston. It's like you pan the camera around and at one angle you can see the drop in framerate.
yes, that would be a good upgrade, one thing i would keep in mind if you find things aren't performing as expected, is watch your gpu vram useage. A couple games that tip over the gtx570's 1280mb vram would be skyrim with high res texture pack, crysis 2 and 3 on higher detail settings, bf3 with higher detail settings. the biggest killer being texture detail and AA settings. So adjusting your settings correctly to not overuse vram you will get great performance.
