Hey guys,I was wondering if anyone could help me out...
Recently my PC Has been stuttering and getting bad fps in most areas like games,desktop etc. As well as fuzzing audio at times.

My PC specs are:
Processor: AMD FX-4100 Quad-Core 3.60GHz
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7800 series
RAM: 16.0 GB
OS: Windows 7
HDD: 1TB (not sure of the model) I've currently got 91GB free :o 

If anyone could help me out it would be very much appreciated :) 

Oh and lately when I have been opening web pages on chrome,the oops error screen will display ALOT of the time.

Thanks in advance! :)

Well, that CPU is probably a little bit of a bottleneck to that GPU. Assuming it is a 7870?

Yeah,I've been considering upgrading my CPU for a while now,would an I7 4820k extreme Quad core be a big step up or is it not worth the money? Oh and I'm not sure which model GPU it is exactly,it just says 7800 series :\

Well I would say the Core i5-4690K and an i5 board like this: http://www.ncixus.com/products/?usaffiliateid=100003150... would be great. Much better performance.

Oooh lovely! :)  Might get that actually, would the I7 have better performance han the i5? Because i've got a budget of 300 euro and wouldn't mind cashing out a bit more if it'll do me for a longer amount of time.

Well, not if you are gaming. The 4690K = 4790K in gaming.

For video editing,would it be faster? faster rendering and smoother preview screen?

Yes, it would be marginally faster, but not enough to make a HUGE difference. For editing, though, get a 4790K with a good cooler to overclock a little bit if wanted. Without a cooler would be fine, stock cooler does the job.

Great,thnx for the help! :)  One last question, is there anything I can do now before I get the new CPU that would improve stuttering? because yesterday it was fine..getting around 50 fps in Payday 2,and now it's freezing,stuttering and giving me a bad fps all over the place! It's not just on Payday 2 either,tried it on a few other games and it would do the same aswell as fuzzy audio.
Restarted my PC multiple times and it doesn't seem to fix anything :(

That would make sense. That is what that CPU does. It is a bottleneck. The 4790K would fix that.

No problem, you will not, but get a SeaSonic or XFX one for a high end build like that. 550W is good. Don't want your components dying due to a bad PSU.
