hello fellow member
i always turn to other tech savy people

frist thing is frist

amd PII x4 970 oc 3.82 on air currently will go to cosair 100i soon
amd 6950 oc to max
gskill 16mb ripjaws x 2400mhz
asus crosshair v forulma z
850 watt power supply
antec 900

My question is what should i upgrade to archive high fps in BF4 1080p say around 80-120 fps.
I am currently going to upgade my gpu to gtx 780 but i dont know if the cpu will bottleneck or will i be able to get to my goal without replacing my cpu. I would like to know if this is possable to get these frames without changing this cpu.

I know replaceing the gpu would be a big factor, but will i get to 80-120 with this cpu?

any input would help.

You have to replace your CPU to at least FX-6300 or higher to run single GTX-780!
You have the most expensive motherboard and too weak CPU that's not good get 8320 and GTX-780!

if your going to drop the money on a 780, grab an i5. It will perform better with battlefields multiplayer which is more CPU intensive than the single player which most, if not all, the benchmarks use.

No! In BF4 multiplayer 8320-8350 should be better than i5, And also OP have to change motherboard to run i5 but it's easier and cheaper to get 8320 and single 780 to run BF4 (IMHO)

Intel is out of the question i just purchased this board about 1 month ago so amd will stay at least another 2 to 3 years

Then in that case go with the 8350 if your mobo supports it.

I see you have CF 7970, what frame are you getting in the games you play. Also which case are you running to fit the h100, looking to purshase the h100i after i decide the cpu decision I am pretty set on the gtx 780, as readon card increase in price

I only have one 7970, the game I have been playing most latetly is BF4 which people like to use as a benchmark, I usually get around 50-60 fps on a 2560x1440 monitor with high/ultra settings, low AA (due to high resolution)

I have the coolermaster HAF 932 case, it fits the H110 fine but you have to use some unique screw placement because it doesn't have holes for 140mm fans. The H100i uses 120mm fans so that case would work fine with that radiator.

The 8320 can OC just about as high as the 8350. I'd go for an 8320 instead, for the lower cost and basically identical performance.

I like the idea on having the best fx 9590 I have a mobo to support it, but I dont have the cooling. Any input on gaming with this oc 5ghz would it increase my frames?

Most likely will run amd 8350

Also having more gpu memory will that gain fps?

Completely unnecessary to have the FX-9590. Get the FX-8320 and OC it.

Having the extra VRAM isn't really necessary at this point in time but if you're not paying a huge premium for it get the 4 GB version.

Get the FX-8320, OC it on a good cooler, and it'll match or exceed FX-8350 OC performance.
The FX-9xxx CPUs just run way too hot to even be effective, they're not worth it.
You won't really see a difference from 2GB VRAM to 4GB VRAM, but if you're already buying a 780 then go 4GB. There's no reason to take chances when that card could otherwise last several years.
