Could i run all games maxed with an Intel i5 3570K? I know you're gonna ask which GPU i have but i want to know can it max out every game? :D

Yes. If a 3570K wouldn't do it, nothing would, lol.

Well, if you reduce resolution to avoid getting GPU-bound, BF3 on large multiplayer maps can get an extra 10fps on an i7-37xx.

That's pretty much the only game that can gain something from i7.

True, but 10 FPS will rarely be a game changer (unless you're at 35 FPS to start with).

And I suppose that a 3930K or 3960x would be better too, but in realistic terms, a 3570K will max out any game, so there's no need to spend that much.

This forum does have the occasional extreme gamers who say they see a significant difference between frame rates beyond 60fps even on a 60Hz screen... but personally, the only thing I see when I play without vsync on is incoming headaches and nausea.

:lol:  But yeah, I agree, going beyond 60FPS on a 60Hz monitor is basically pointless. If there's an edge to be gained by more than 60, it's in the reaction time somehow, I guess.

haha I know what you mean. You get bad headaches from screen tearing when your fps is above your refresh rate of your monitor. Vsync is there just for that problem

if it is a i5 or i7 it is already ocing look into a Intel(R) Turbo Boost Technology Monitor 3.8 GHz with Turbo Boost and update your video drivers too they do not update on there own. Even on auto update.

just take this infro or not i tell everyone this so ya :)

I own a 3570k and it's overclocked to 4.6Ghz. over 99% of all games use 4 cores or less. And the i5 3570k's 4 cores are THE most powerful 4 cores you can get on the market right now. A 3570k's core is even more powerful than a 3970x. So in 99% of games, a 3570k will be better than a 3970x. There are .1% of games that can use more than 4 cores but they don't even do so efficiently so it doesn't matter.

So in short, YES a 3570k is the single most powerful gaming CPU you can buy, PERIOD.
