Upgrading the CPU and Mobo Tags: CPUs FPS Product Last response: May 27, 2010 12:37 PM in CPUs Share Sirus3002 May 27, 2010 6:10:32 AM hi,my rig is AMD Athlon 64 3800 GA-M61SME-S2 (rev. 2.x) 2GB DDR2 Ram EVGA 9600GT 512mb i think the cpu is bottlenecking the system coz i only get arround 20-30 fps in call of duty 4 at 1024x768 with all options on..and sometime it drops to 12 -20 fps.. im thinking to buy intel motherboard and a processor GA-G31M-S2L mobo with E5400 or E7400 going for E7400 will give high fps? or its better to get E5400 considering other parts i hv (2GB ram and 9600GT) ?? (im from Sri Lanka and here there are few AMD processors and mobo's and they are really expensive now) More about : upgrading cpu mobo Lmeow a b à CPUs May 27, 2010 6:22:21 AM The E7400 will be faster than the E5400, and I suggest you get that if possible instead. The E7400 should work with the GIGABYTE GA-G31M-S2L motherboard, and your old DDR2 RAM as well. m 0 l Sirus3002 May 27, 2010 6:51:36 AM Lmeow said:The E7400 will be faster than the E5400, and I suggest you get that if possible instead.
