How much fps will increase if i change my processor?

In my current build i got:
i3-4130 processor hyperthreated dual core running at 3.40ghz
8GB (2x4gb) 1600mhz
GTX 960 msi gaming 2GB

When im playing GTA V i got some constant 68-70 fps, they maximum reach 80(multiplayer) and 120(singleplayer) but at their laggiest moments they can come down to 47-50. Im thinking about buying a i5-4440, so i wanted to know how much fps would increase if i get that new cpu, all answers are appreciated!

    Almost not at all. Maybe a couple extra FPS in those bad spots and probably nothing extra in the good areas.

    I recently went from an i3 4170 to i5 4590 so this is speaking from experience. I would say it helps your overall FPS A LOT depending on how you look at it. I say that because it gets rid of that awful CPU bottlenecking in the city, but your FPS only maybe goes up 4-5 elsewhere. With my R9 390, all cores on my i3 spiked to 100% in the city leaving me with 60% GPU usage. With the i5, my CPU usage hits 90% occasionally but doesn't bottleneck the GPU anymore. Solid 95-100% GPU usage all the time.

    All on high/max settings:
    FPS in desert with i3: 79
    FPS in desert with i5: 84
    FPS in city with i3: 32
    FPS in city with i5: 59
    Minimum FPS in city with i3: 9 FPS
    Minimum FPS in city with i5: 41 FPS
    Average CPU usage with i3 (each core): 92% 76% 84% 67%
    Average CPU usage with i5 (each core): 72% 64% 69% 60%

    We are talking about 1080p right?
  4. Yes.
  5. Just remember that modernwar99 is using appropriate settings for his GPU as well. What I mean by that is if you have too high of settings, your GPU will slow down performance more than the CPU.

    Are you talking about overclocking?
