Hello,

Right now i have specs and i am facing severe bottleneck,

core i3 540 @ 3.1Ghz ( x2 )
8 Gb DDR3 RAM @ 1333 BuS
XFX HD 7850 Graphic card @ Stock settings
Gigabyte H55M-D2H Motherboard

i was think of upgrading to i5 2500k bt its out of my price range bt i found an i7-860 2.8Ghz and i wanted to ask that if i swap the i3 witht his i7 will i face bottleneck or not ? in bf3 my gpu usage is like 50 - 55 %

What problem you have?

In BF3 you must have been playing Multiplayer?
MP uses 4 cores. Bit i3 has 2 cores. That means less performance.

Swap it, it will be better. But save up for i5 3470. Thats a very nice card + cheap
I have that and it runs every thing awesome.

Monitor resolution?
PSU?
I think you already have a nice setup there... well, depends on what are you going to play, it will gives you different result. But generally, it's a good setup. :)

PSU is fine. Infact very good.

But i3 is the Problem.
In what games you face problems? In Multi or Single player?
