I understand the i5 750 is "old" by some people's standards on this forum but I'm not seeing any reason what so ever to upgrade it when running Battlefield 3 maxed out doesn't even come close to utilizing all cores fully?

When will the time come to really need an upgrade you think? I'm thinking sometime after the 2016 Olympics lol.


As lots have said, the CPU is non-issue.

I don't believe a new GPU is an imperative until the new consoles arrive, though I would like 2GB of VRAM for texture mods. If an incredible deal came my way, I think about buying the card... but not likely otherwise.

I disable mothion blur and AA anyway, pay more attention to my first post. You guys are impossible! Read "35FPS" and don't even bother to get to the end of the post! biggrin.gif

I have used over 1.5GB a few times now and that's only at 1080p. So yes, more vram is not a waste even for a single monitor. Also, 1Gb is surely not enough for games like The Witcher 2 or Skyrim, because I'm ALWAYS over 1GB on those games. I used those games for reference because I actually play them and have seen first hand what resources they require (adding mods requires even more vram than that). Maybe 1GB is plenty for BF3, but it's not enough for every game on the market.

If the card uses it, then it's needed. Otherwise the cards are being starved for resources.

I think the CPU will be fine for a few years it's always the GPU(s) that need to be upgraded until the CPU becomes the bottleneck. Regarding gaming at 60 FPS argument, if you're anywhere between 30 and 60 FPS you're not going to notice a whole lot. If your games start getting choppy and FPS drops below 30 and under, then you have to lower settings or upgrade the GPU.

Do what makes you happy, and ignore the opinions of people who base their self-esteem entirely on the amount of money they have dumped into their computers. thumb.gif


Also, there will always be well-developed games which do not have ridiculous requirements in order to be enjoyed at maximum potential.
