When To Upgrade

I have a AMD FX 8120 I set to 4.2GHz because games like BF3 were experiencing "miner" lag at lower speeds. When should I get a new CPU because it seems like I should get one of em fancy i5s.

  1. I doubt your "minor" lag was because of your CPU. What graphics card are you running?

    A 6870. I'm getting a 7970 in the mail. It was fixed when I sped it up, so it's gotta be the CPU.
