Help me Upgrading my PC Tags: CPUs FPS Last response: May 31, 2013 4:02 AM in CPUs Share Dreamton November 15, 2012 9:46:10 PM Hey Guys! my PC: Cpu: Athlon II x3 445 3.1 Ghz Graphics: XFX Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 RAM: 8GB DDR3 Motherload: M4N68T I don't know if I should upgrade CPU or my Graphicscard? I've just started playing CS:GO But when I play my fps drops a lot, especially when there are lots of players at one time or lots of action at one time(shown on my screen). I play with 800x600 with the lowest settings and the fps is around: 100-150fps : when running around! 50fps : when I'm on a deathmatch server! or when 4+ players is attacking aroung I would like to run with: resolution: 1024x768 With highest settings. with stable fps on 150 fps or highere BTW I would like to keep the budget as low as possible!

Not much you can do in the direction of CPU m 0 l khaledegy200 May 11, 2013 5:26:52 PM Well, they both needs upgrade, but if u upgrade cpu first u will need a decent mobo as well. so better upgrading gpu now and save up for an i5 cpu. but watch out, ur cpu will bottleneck with apprx. every game u play. as for gpu here is some cards around ur budget:- 1.EVGA 02G-P4-3658-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST SuperClocked 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card for $169[130 Eur] after rebates 2.HIS H785F1G2M Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card for $169 [130 Eur] 3.MSI N650TI-1GD5/V1 GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card for only $129 [99 Eur] the second one is the fastest one right there. the 3rd is like 1st but with 1GB memory instead of 2GB and a bit lower core-clock and 128-Bit memory bus instead of 192-bit. but the 3rd one is the cheapest one, however i'd recommend the radeon 7850 but it depends on ur favorite. m 0 l under_rock May 31, 2013 3:01:28 AM I done my some upgrades from these sites: http://www.discountmicrosales.com/ http://www.newegg.com/ http://www.memory4less.com/ The Support from all above sites are good and knowledgeable ppls which can guide you through...Best Luck..... Cheers! m 0 l Gennaios May 31, 2013 4:02:54 AM well with 100-140 euros or whatever you can get some pretty respectful gpus like gtx 650 or the 7750! m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
