  1. Mate, you should have never got a Bulldozer CPU. They are very bad. Exchange it while you still can.
  2. ^what he said.
  3. Came with my comp, im thinking of upgrading to the fx 8350? Should i do it?
  4. FX-8350 is competitive with the i5. At least for gaming.
  5. I bought a 3770k a couple days ago but couldnt use it due to me having a am3+ socket instead of a lga1155 but is it worth upgrading to a 8350??

    Did you return the CPU? That wasn't a smart move to buy an intel processor for an AMD motherboard. The 8350 is worth it to buy, but make sure you buy a cooler as well, such as the Cooler master Hyper 212 EVO for $30. With overclock, the 8350 should be on par or exceed a stock i5 3570k.
  7. yea i returned the 3770k
  8. To use the 3770k i would have had to buy a new mobo and case
  9. But I was thinking of getting 8350 cause of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eu8Sekdb-IE
  10. Before you invest money into anything it may be worth investigating other causes of lag. I have had ARMA II run smoothly on an FX-4100 + HD 6850 which is well below your original system specs.

    What motherboard do you have?
  11. The only time I have major, and when I saw major I mean like 10-15 fps from 50+ fps. and thats when: 1. everyone is shooting at once 2. ton of vehicles around 3. on a taki life server. Taki life is my fav and I really want this lag to stop
  12. but ur gunna laugh when I tell u what motherboard i have....

    thats everything except my psu is now 520 and my video card is a gtx 660 ti
  13. Just get a 8350 Piledriver http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113284 and use it on your existing Mobo.
