Hi there,

I am using this computer for mostly gaming with my ATI 6870. However currently i have an AMD phenom II x4 810 cpu which runs at 2.6ghz. For some reason my motherboard bios will not let me overclock. I am curious to know if there would be a huge difference if i switched to a AMD phenom II x4 960T 3.0ghz cpu? If it raises my FPS by like 10 then i will buy it. I currently have this motherboard. I want to play BF3 at 1600 x 900 on medium settings 40 + fps :p 

Thank you.

I doubt you'd see a big difference with the upgrade you describe

I'm not sure the difference between a GTX 560 Ti and a 6870 but I get 60fps on high settings at 1920x1080 on multiplayer and about 30fps on Ultra in single player. I'm also hitting a CPU bottleneck with my i3-2100, I don't see how you could be getting worse fps even at lower resolutions, back to your original question. I don't think it will only give you but a few fps.
