Pc good enough?

first of all I wanna thank you all for having the time to read this.
I wanted to know your opinion on this cpu and gpu I am using to play swtor. the lowest I get is about 30-50 fps in warzones, max settings at 1920 resolution, and I get 50+ everywhere else in the world.
the cpu is this CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
gpu: Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card
OS: windows 8 64-bit
ram: 8gb 1600 Mhz

do you guys think im getting the fps im supposed to get? and what if I want to upgrade and get more fps? should I replapce cpu? or gpu? or both? I have heard that this cpu is more than enough for swtor and that If I want to replace something and get more fps, it should be the gpu. what do you guys think?

  1. You don't really need to upgrade the cpu because as I can see, you aren't overclocking so I think that cpu is okay It is not bottlenecking your gpu. But you can still upgrade it to 3570 or 3770 if you have budget. But remember it is only a few steps apart. So upgrading your cpu will not really gain much of fps(or maybe none, not really sure). But regarding you gpu, if you want a constant 60 fps but your on lower budget, your best bet would be 7950/660 ti but I think with your resolution, 7950 would be better. If I were you, to save money then don't upgrade yet the cpu, upgrade only the gpu if you have the money.
  2. Definitely a GPU bottleneck these. I'm guessing your maxing the settings?
  3. yea, im maxing the settings. well, actually It was all by default. and yes, I thought that cpu was ok and that would not gain much (in terms of fps) if I upgraded it. thanks for confirming that to me =)
    I will look forward into buying a better gpu then. ^_^
  4. Look for 7970 its total kickass for good price
