GTX 560 TI 1gb OC 6gb ram AMD PHENOM II X2 550 processor (duel core @ 3.1ghz) Windows 7 64 bit I want to upgrade my CPU to the AMD PHENOM II X4 965 Processor (quad core @ 3.4ghz) located here http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite.... I wanna know if this upgrade will greatly or atleast boost my FPS high enough so i can actually play these games without Low FPS. Battlefield 3 only gets around 40 FPS but i end up going down to 22 and i figured it must be the processor, if i upgrade it will this stop the frame rate drop that i experience?
