I have an intel corei3 3220 ( 3.3 ghz) with inno 3d gtx 650 (1gb) which i use entirely for gaming, i wanted to upgrade this so i wanted the help of the community that i should buy a corei5 3rd gen ( recommend me which to buy) or a better graphics card? The psu is 450 watt so i will also buy a new psu to go with the upgrade, and help is appreciated, thanks in advance

for medium settings ur setup should be enough, for high/ultra settings get an i5 and a GTX 770

But when i play COD the graphics are so bad, the frame rate is near 30 but the graphics are so bad as compared to that of a console! And also the graphics of prototype 2 and even the frst prototype game has very bad and choppy graphics :/

Vsync locks ur fps in a game to the refresh rate of ur monitor, to prevent the tearing u're describing, but at that resolution and medium a settings i find it strange ur setup has a problem, probably its excessive fps causing tearing, in that case vsync will help, use FRAPS to measure ur FPS in game
