I wanted to upgrade my current Cpu to a Q8400 2.66 quad, i play a lot of games like the witcher2, shogun total war, and etc. I also want to be able to play the new games that are coming out like battlefield 3.
Current computer specs:
GTX 560 ti
My question is, will upgrading to the Q8400 quad make a difference in the games? and is it worth it
Well, the question is, do you want to spend $180 or so on a processor that is a generation behind? Since you seem to have other components that seem adequate, maybe upgrading your motherboard to an AM3+ (current AMD generation) or Socket 1155 (Intel) would be a better option, for a little more money?
