Hi Guys i have the AMD FX4170 cpu and the Asus HD7770 and i was playing BF:BC2 nd i was gettin 30fps. I checked my CPU usage at it was averaging at 70-90%!! This to me sounds like a bottleneck of my GPU...?
I was thinking of buying the fx8350? this surely make some kind of improvement?
How good are the fx 8350 CPU's? Are they compatible with the M5A 78L-M Motherboard?
Im a NOOB to all this as you probably can tell. go easy on me just wanna sort some terrible fps..
the 8350 is an excellent chip in price to performance. It tops the i7 980X and 2700K. All for about 70-100 bucks cheaper. But If you want want some decent frames go with a 7870 or 7850. The 8350 will certainly handle those two cards

Cheeerrs i guess the way forward is to upgrade my gpu first then follow up with my cpu later if needed..
