i have a amd athlon 64 x2 4000+ and a 9600gt oc'd graphics card. in left for dead i get 60-130 fps on low settings and 120fps on css. was told im getting low fps/fps drops due to my cpu bottlenecking, will this cpu fix that, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
asking because the low cache, i have a dell and cant use am2+ cpus i think.
I would ask on one of the dell forums if someone has used the 5600 brisbane on your board. It will help your framerates some. A faster video card would also help, but that might require a better power supply. Pc power and cooling makes a dell replacement power supply for aroung $60-70 sold at newegg.
That sucks. More than likely it only takes a BIOS update. However I haven't bought an OEM computer like Dell for the longest time, so I don't how often they refresh their BIOS updates. I would go ahead and check with Dell if they have a newer BIOS that will allow the Kuma to work.
