Curently i'm running far cry 3 on medium settings at resolution of 1600x900 on pentium dual core e5400 2.7ghz and 4 gb of ddr3 ram and sapphire hd r7-240 1gb ddr5 (overclocked to 900/1300)

And i'm getting 35-40 average fps minimum 28

My question is if i upgrade to intel core 2 quad cpu then then how much fps increasement i will get ?

Not a lot with that GPU. From the benchmarks I'm seeing, that GPU is averaging 35FPS in AC black flag, BF4, and Bioshock at medium to low settings. Even with that CPU your GPU could probably still be your bottleneck in some games.

Still can i get 8-10 extra fps ?

Just remember when sites test GPU's like yours or a 750ti they use an overkill processor (like i7-4770K @ 4.2 GHz) to see GPU's true potential with no CPU bottleneck and represent best case scenario results. Getting a new CPU will yield closer to best case scenario results so you would need both a new CPU/GPU combo to raise your minimum and average frames per second.

Look up a few benchmarks with the games you play and your GPU, you will most likely find that they are similar (maybe the review sites overall numbers are a little higher because they used an overkill processor) but you will see the GPU is the limiting factor. Are the test sites numbers 8-10 FPS higher than what you are getting?

Like Juice said, your GPU maxes out at the FPS your getting, at medium setting at best. The only thing a new CPU would help with is games like BF3 or BF4 or Planet Side 2, games where there's lots of other people and your computer has to figure out where they are and update accordingly. You can pick up more FPS with a better GPU.

A GPU is usually what will give you better FPS, this only changes when your CPU starts to be the bottle neck, as it stands, your GPU is still the bottle neck so a better CPU won't really do much in gaming.

So you are saying cpu does'nt matter in gaming and my pentium is ok for gaming ?

I would get a 750ti 1st, then the best CPU your mobo can handle 2nd and 8 gigs of the fastest ram your mobo supports 3rd.

What Core 2 Quad are you looking @?
