I have started to play Planetside 2, do I need an upgrade? Tags: CPUs Graphics Cards Product Last response: December 17, 2012 11:02 PM in CPUs Share xringx December 17, 2012 11:33:14 AM My current specs are in my signature, except I have moved my CPU clock down to 3.2GHz... I was going to buy a video card this AM, but started reading and found a few threads talking about how the game is CPU intensive... My question for all of you is, if I move to a 7850 or the like, am I choking it with my current CPU?
