I am planning to upgrade my processor to AMD PHENOM II 955 x4 3.2 GHz.Now I have Dual Core E5700 @ 3.00 GHz 3.00 GHz,will changes in FPS be huge?My other specs below:
Graphic card:VTX3D HD 6770 1GB DDR5
I recently upgraded from GT 220 to HD 6770 and I am still not able to play Word of Tanks on Very high with 40+ FPS,with this specs I am getting 30-20 FPS so if I upgrade to that processor will FPS raise alot to 40+?
Buy a good CPU cooler, Overclock the living cr@p out of that Dual Core. If it works and is stable, great your done and only had to buy a cooler. If it dont help or melts down, who cares you were planning the CPU change anyway, go ahead with it and reuse the shiney new cooler.
WoT is a single CPU game.
You may want to look into tweaking the settings:
World of Tanks performance optimization guide: My Computers top of the range but I still experience FPS problems! Why?
There are a few reasons:
-World of Tanks uses only one core
-World of Tanks uses 2GB of RAM or less
-World of Tanks has some optimization issues with some graphics cards eg ATI, it's best optimized for Nvidia
-World of Tanks engine (Big World) doesn't render objects in real time, textures are loaded and displayed (long loading times).
-Some issues with Windows 64 bit systems
In other words, if you are getting the 955 significantly cheaper, it may be a good deal. As to the performance improvement in games, that would depend on the games as others have said. Most are still GPU bound.
Thanks guys but I think I will upgrade to AMD PHENOM II 955 x4 3.2 GHz so I can buy a better graphic card with no bottleneck.Am I right?In future I am planning to get GTX 560 Ti.That a good processor for that card?And by the way I saw alot of gameplays on HD 6770 on high/ultra with 40+ FPS.For example Saints Row 3,on the vid with max settings the guy had 30-50 FPS I think, but I have 30-20.
Would an upgrade to Intel Core i5 2500 @ 3.30 Ghz be good?
i5-2400 is a better deal. Only 10% slower at a better price. The i3-2100 I mentioned earlier will be plenty also, but is not as fast as the i5. Either will require a new socket 1155 motherboard which can be had for as little as $55 depending on the features you require.
