CPU bottleneck, the massive FPS drop when there are lots of people around that need to be kept track of indicates that its CPU related, try lowering the graphics settings and see if it improves a bit, if it doesnt then it confirms the CPU being the bottleneck.

If you tried low settings and it didnt improve at all that means that it is a completely CPU based bottleneck. Which C2D did you get, no matter what one it should help quite a bit. The 4650 should be plenty for Aion.

That should give you a big boost especially in that minimum FPS.

one last question... never installing a cpu before how much trouble would i have installing it?? will i need to apply thermal grease? or is this one good just applying heatsink and fan?

It will come with a little instruction booklet, just follow that. I believe the 775 heatsink comes with thermal paste preapplied, so it should just be a matter of pulling off the plastic cover, putting the heatsink on, pressing and twisting the push pins so that they are locked into place.

If you follow the little instruction book it should be easy.
