Need a decent CPU (AM3+ Scoket) Tags: CPUs Motherboards Last response: December 30, 2012 11:18 PM in CPUs Share dondanielj December 30, 2012 10:49:40 PM So I have the Asus Crosshair V Formula motherboard, with a AMD-FX 4100 CPU. I decided to upgrade the curent cpu, as it won't allow me to record my game footage, always CPU usage at 100%, and lags -_-. (Can't be the GPU, have 2x7970 Crossfire) I am not sure which CPU should I get, which will be good for gaming and recording at the same time. Some people Recommend to buy Phenom II 980 x 4 cores. What you guys think, is there any better AM3+ CPU's in the market right now? Thanks!
