Worth the uprage Athlon x3 425 2.7 GHz to Phenom II X4 955 black ed.

Greetings knowledgable ones.

I wondered what level of performance increase i could expect moving from Athlon x3 425 2.7 GHz to Phenom II X4 955 black edition.

On win 7 32 bit. 4gb ram.

My GPU is Nvidia GTX 275, which although is a bit old is still pretty fast.

Games I will be playing include Shogun 2, Rage, Skyrim, x3 rebirth, witcher 2.

Any thoughts?

  1. In games that are limited by your CPU you should get 15-25% increase in FPS if you overclock it another 10%ish. This will vary alot from game to game.
  2. it will make a few increase in fps.. but if i were you overclock first your current cpu..

    mine is athlon ii x3 440 and is in its 3.75ghz.. on par with the phenom II in some cases..
  3. Naaaah, don't bother, the increase in perfomance is negligible in most daily taks. Only in very, I mean VERY cpu intensive apps will you feel the difference.
