I dont know where your information is from, but it I am not being limited, my i3 hits around 90% useage in BC2, I just want higher frame rates. My 5770 is not the limiting factor here, I know exactly what i am talking about, also yet another daft post suggesting upgrading the GPU, maybe check the dimension of my MINI ITX PC, a GTS450/5770 is the best it will fit, both are fine for my needs. I am not asking for opinions on my build as im not stupid, I have built enough PCs to know my stuff. I MERELY asked for opinions on which MOSFET heatsinks to get, nothing more, nothing less.
You sure HT is on? I have a faster GPU(like 2x) and I don't get anywhere near that amount of CPU usage with 99% GPU usage. Unless you are running it on low settings, you won't get an increase worth $200+.
Perhaps you should think more about your build if you're intending on playing games with demanding requirements only to be limited by GPU selection, which is the most important part needed for games.
With the smarts of someone such as yourself, you would think googling MOSFET, or entering it into Newegg would have come naturally.
You put the game into a window, and run it beside
Added a pic. This is at 4Ghz because of how hot it is. It's about 10-20% lower at 4.4Ghz. That 1600x1200 window, 2xAA,16xAF, Vsync/HBAO off and everything else on high. 60+ fps.
