Specs follows

AMD 8120 @4.0Ghz
Asus Formula Motherboard
Creative Recon sound card
Asus Geforce GTX680 DirectCU II Top Edition x1 ( Nvidia Drivers 306.02)
G.Skill 16GB (2133Mhz)
Kingston 120GB SSD Read 555MB/s, Write 510MB/s RAID 0
Corsair AX-1200

With a Coolmaster HAF 932 and H-80 Corsair CPU cooler

I'm completely at a loss as to why at 1920x1080 on Extreme preset in game I would be getting 35-40fps and 20-30fps while driving around usually.

Real advice would be more than welcome at the moment because I shake my head when I see a way lower spec system doing better via youtube links haha!!

Creative drivers are current April 2012
AMD Chipset is Current at 12.8
Nvidia released 306.02 is latest beta that I know anyway
Kingston Firmware is updated also
1301 bios... not latest.

Your CPU is bottlenecking, but also Sleeping Dogs is unoptimized. My 965 and 7950 got around 40-60. I finished the game and won't be reinstalling it so I don't know the FPS from my new system.

So what CPU do I need in your opinion?

Just recently upgraded from a P-55 i7860 design about 5 months ago.....

I went for the cheap(er) Intel option (which is what I upgraded to from my 965) a Core i5 3470 and a Gigabyte H77M-D3H but I'd just disable some cores of that FX and OC the rest. There are guides for this. That will boost speed. Gaming wise though, the FX is slow.

Yes. There are dozens and dozens of threads and benchmarks online. Bottom line, its not worth it. I'm glad I went Intel.
