Hello,I just bought ASUS EAH6870 last week, when I playing CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS with high setting and AA 16x there have leak. My processor is AMD ATHLON II X2 250 3.0Ghz, 4GB ram DDR2 and PSU 650watt GX cooler master. Should I change my processor to PHENOM II? and what the recommended processor to playing games with high detail???

  1. Hi cucimanta and welcome to Tom's forum.

    Any CPU with L3 Cache can do a good job with the games, just be sure that your current mobo support the new CPU before buy it.

    What do you mean "there have leak"? Is the video card a 512 or 1 gig model? The CPU "may" be the issue if you have slowdowns, but if you only have a 512mb video card and are running at 16AA high textures, that could be the issue also. 16x AA is a bit of an overkill, even 4x is plenty to smooth things out.

    I think you mean to say Lag in this case. The video card would be fine for this, but if you run on very high settings you need a pretty much top of the line system for that game.

    Tomorrow I try buy the new processor.......... Tq 4 ur cooperate
  10. Your mobo only support until X6 1075T with a BIOS update, but you don't need go so high. A Phenom II X4 can do the job.
  11. Tom's HW 2010 CPU Charts only has L4D2 as a gaming benchmark. Your CPU is rated 124. A Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition is going 195 ($160 at Newegg) and a X4 955 BE is 190 ($145).
    Your current processor is going for $61.

    It looks like you'll see some sort of improvement.

    Is your motherboard and AM2+ or an AM3?
