The higher OC runs fine for 45minutes playing infantry and tank but crashes in 1 minute when I'm flying helicopter.
planning to get the cheapest 7850 and OC it so that bf3 can run Ultra no-msaa on 1080p at nearly 60fps smoothly.
This bottleneck issue bothers me very much because I don't want to be stuck on 40+fps knowing my graphic card is capable of 60.
Doesn't feel right to get less than what I pay for.
Any comments on how I can improve this ?
Currently playing low detail with radeon 5670, if the 7850 plan doesn't work out I'm probably gonna skip it and wait for overhaul in 3 years.

Buy a bulldozer CPU smile.gif Depending on your mobo, you may do without upgrade to AM3. Otherwise, the 2500k road is still open smile.gif

Nahhh, I'm not gonna spend so much to nearly build an entire new rig.
Besides bf3 I have no use for which a powerful cpu or gpu, just surfing the web for 90% of the time

Then what are you complaining of? biggrin.gif In case you have a CPU bottleneck, and you can't OC further and you don't want to upgrade, you just learn to live with it. It's that simple smile.gif

First of all,the guys who shifted to 2500k didn't have an AMD CPU before that.
Second, even if he had, The fact that his FPS rise absolutely means that the GPU was bottlenecked by the previous CPU. "FPS raise because of better processors" = GPU bottleneck from the old processor.
To the OP - even if there is a bottleneck, would you care for the difference between 90FPS and 110FPS?
Bottom line - everything will run great, even if there is a bottleneck, you won't notice it in gameplay, and that is what matters, unless you are a crazy bencher smile.gif
Oh really? If you have a amd quad core processor and you get a certain fps with your gpu usage at 99% how is your card by any means bottle-necked? Please OP have a try,open up msi afterburner and start up battlefield 3 and play it for a while and then have a look at your gpu usage and if the max recorded gpu usage is 99% then you are not gpu bottle-necked as your gpu is running at it's full usage. If however,the usage is low then i can conclude by saying that your cpu does not have enough power to run your gpu at max usage. So we aren't looking at a system which is likely to get more fps in a game,we are looking for the maximum fps contributed by the card. Everybody is aware the games use both-cpu and gpu,some games use more of the cpu than gpu while others the other way around. So both the gpu as well as cpu contribute to the fps you get in a game. Guess in these days the term 'bottleneck' has changed to mean any processor that generates higher fps rather than it traditionally being applied to not enough cpu power to run the gpu at max usage:p

If a new CPU gives you FPS raise, then by definition, the old CPU was bottlenecking your GPU, and it's usage with the old CPU CAN'T be 99%.
If the GPU usage was 99%, a new CPU will NOT give you FPS raise, use your head for a change smile.gif

Q6600 @ 3.6Ghz here is more then enough for BF3. I play it on High with HD 5850 fps 60-70 @ 1080p.

I have to side with jason387 on this one, and here's why...
I decided to benchmark my sig rig with dual HD 6850's and an AMD Phenom II X4 830 @ 3.8 GHz.
So I ran 3DMark 11, and I received a score of P6698, and according to MSI Afterburner my gpu useage was 99%-98% on both cards throughout the test. Curious, I compared my results to an i3 2100, in the results section.
I found my total score was a couple hundrad points higher then the top ranked HD 6850 Crossfire i3 2100 rig ( which I noticed, had the exact same gpu overclock as well ).
When I did a side by side comparison of the results, I was suprised to find that every GPU test the i3 2100 had me beat between 1-2 fps,
however I had manged to squeak out a victory because I had beaten the I3 2100 by 3-4 fps in both the CPU physics, and combined test.

That got me askin'... If my CPU was able to out muscle the the i3 2100 in both the physics, and combined tests, why didn't that carry over to win in the GPU tests as well? If I had near perfect gpu utilization, how did the i3 system beat me in every single GPU test? Are my GPU's being bottlenecked by my CPU???... My conclusion was, NO my Phenom II X4 830 is not bottleneckin' my GPU's, since I'm getting near perfect GPU utilization. I chalk the difference up to just a difference in CPU architectures, one is better at physics, while the other is better at pushing frame rates... That's all. thumb.gif

According to http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/36269-amd-radeon-hd-7850-vs-6850-vs-5850-clocks/?page=6 the 7850 and 5850 are quite similar.

that is a q6600 also good cpu and with good oc i doubt it would bottle neck very much. either way that is the q6600 the q9550 is whole other monster, especially OCed.

EDIT: oopps thread is about q6600


EDIT: unless you had a DDR3 board with socket 775 there is MUCH more to it than the cpu upgrade from ie q6600 to i5 2500k your changing ram mobo and chipset.

you can't just say oh well i upgraded to a sandy bridge and got more fps. it is a load of bs because they are 2 totally different platforms. you could say i upgraded to a new platform and double my FPS.
