Hey guys, short and simple question.
I currently have an AMD Phenom X4 9650 @ 2.3GHz, What % FPS increase will i get in games if i upgrade to an AMD Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.4 Ghz?
I know FPS is more of a gpu determined thing but i've upgraded all my components in the past year or so except my CPU.
im getting very little FPS on the benchmark, I was getting 3.5 fps on average when doing the Extreme X 1920x1080 test! When i overclocked my cpu by around 250 it went up to 5 Fps on average, then i overclocked my GPU a bit and it continued to be around 5 Average FPS.
Well if you can get your cpu to 3ghz, that would be a pretty good match for 5770. If you can do that I don't really see any reason to upgrade the cpu until you upgrade the gpu.
955 is not the fastest compatible. You could probably go all the way up to the 970 or 975 but I would still recommend the 955 because it will run just as fast as 975. Then there are also the 6 cores, but they aren't faster for gaming because the clock speed is lower.
