So i'm thinking of upgrading my cpu, but there are a few BUT's to this...
My specs :
Pentium Dual Core e5400 oc from 2,7 to 3,1Ghz
I bought BF3 a few days ago and it lags like hell on multiplayer (Crashes, low fps etc). So i was thinking, maybe i should upgrade to a Core 2 Quad 6600 ? I Can't upgrade to an i5 cause of my motherboard, LGA 775 socket. Would i be getting a major improvement in FPS while playing BF3 multiplayer ? I really can't be bothered to change mobo, ram and cpu, i don't want it bad enough .
So would it be worth the upgrade ? How would a Q6600 compare to a say i5 2500k ? Or is the Core 2 Quad series at the end of it's lifeline.
The only upgrade to the LGA775 socket that would make the grade, would be the fastest Core2Quad you can find. And that would be used, as in ebay. The QX97xx's and even the Q95xx's would be a good upgrade to stretch a bit more life out of the LGA775 socket you have. But we need to know which motherboard you have so it can be determined if the 'high end' C2Qs will work in it. If it would, a BIOS upgrade will probably be required. The above mentioned quad cores are at least the equivalent of the high end Phenom II x4s. And they are still adequate gamers.
