hi, i recently got gw2 and my fps is horrible when there are many people around. was thinking of upgrading my cpu from this:
to this:

i was wondering if the transition would be a problem and what kind of performance increase i could expect. not quite ready to build a totally new computer yet, and im pretty new to all of this.

heres my specs:
nvidia 8600 gts
6 gb ram, ddr2
750w psu
win7 64bit
dunno if im missing anything, my machine is a dell xps 710 though

id like to know if itll make a difference, and if not, what would be a good and budget friendly alternative?

More about : cpu pls

I'd look into upgrading your old GPU before a CPU. You'll see a lot better performance out of that. Look on the sys reqs for gw2 and see what the 'recommended requirements' are to help judge what GPU to look at getting.

will the gpu not bottleneck or something because of the cpu for the card you reccomended?

also, i preordered it :)
