[Upgrade] Athlon 7750BE -> Phenom IIX4 955 Tags: CPUs Dual Core Phenom Last response: May 30, 2011 10:25 AM in CPUs Share kleung77 May 30, 2011 10:12:39 AM I am wonder if it would be worthwhile to upgrade from an Athlon 7750 dual core to a Phenom IIX4 955 in my current rig or should I just wait and replace the system altogether. My current system: AMD Athlon 7750BE @3.0GHz Asus M2N-E mobo (nForce 570 Ultra) G.skill 1GB x 4 DDR2-800 XFX Geforce 9800GTX+ 512MB Would the older & slower RAM limit the performance of Phenom IIX4 by a lot? I have been playing The Witcher 2 (1280*1024) on the rig at medium spec-, getting 25-35fps... I am wondering if this upgrade would help. Thanks!

And you really cant max out games, even with a good gpu you would still get bottlenecks in some areas. The ddr2 and the ddr3 arent that much far apart in performance when you compare them. ghnader hsmithot a b à CPUs May 30, 2011 10:25:26 AM http://www.anandtech.com/show/2232/7 Can't find your answer ?
