Should I be getting better performance from my rig? Tags: Radeon Performance RAM Graphics Last response: December 23, 2012 3:11 PM in Graphics & Displays Share LouChaos December 23, 2012 2:47:11 PM Hello, I recently upgraded my video card, but the performance isn't what I expected. In Far Cry 3, Battlefield 3, Hitman Absolution I'm only getting 20 FPS. My gear: i3-550 Radeon HD 7850 Gigabyte GA-H55-USB3 8GB Ripjaw RAM @ 1333 Considering a CPU/MOBO/RAM upgrade, but not sure if it's necessary.

Sadly the I3-550 is only a Hyperthreaded Dual Core. http://ark.intel.com/products/48505/Intel-Core-i3-550-P...(4M-Cache-3_20-GHz) Your MB has Support for an Intel® Core™ i7 series processor/Intel® Core™ i5 series processor/ Intel® Core™ i3 series processor in the LGA1156 package http://sk.gigabyte.com/products/page/mb/ga-h55-usb3_20/ CPU Upgrade is def what you need =D swifty_morgan December 23, 2012 3:10:52 PM and having said that.............. I don't know about the other 2 but FC3 won't be delivering very high frames to begin with. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

I'll probably just do a system overhaul, since 1156 is dated, and better processors for cheaper are on the 1155 boards. Thanks! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
