Does a CPU make a big change in FPS in non-CPU-intensive games?
Mar 16, 2013, 12:04 PM
I know that in games like Planetside 2, CPU will make a big difference in your FPS. How about games that are more GPU intensive? Will there still be a difference? How big?

It literally depends on the game. A faster CPU will have a positive impact, but that can range from a little to alot ( like Crysis3). The GPU is by far the biggest factor in fps.
