FPS suffering due to CPU? Tags: CPUs FPS Motherboards Last response: March 19, 2012 5:37 AM in CPUs Share akispines March 19, 2012 2:22:59 AM Hello! I'm wondering if my FPS (Battlefield 3) is suffering due to my dated CPU. I currently have C2Q Q6600 @ 2.4 GhZ, but running with a GTX 580 GPU. 8GB of RAM, and a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P motherboard. Is it time for motherboard / CPU / RAM upgrades?
