Poo. One reply =(.
I am ABSOLUTELY positive it's the CPU.
The GTX 560 is actually pretty good. It's stock overclocked a few hz and according to futuremark it gets a score of 4000, which is WAY higher than the CPU score.
Also, running 3D mark my physics score SUCKS.
Also, in Planetside 2 it directly tells me via the FPS counter that it's pretty much always the CPU holding me back.
Anyway, now my question is this: How quickly do CPUs become outdated? How long would an i5-3570K be good for, a couple of years? If it is, I don't have a problem shelling out the extra money.
I could always upgrade the graphics card in a year and a half's time?
