Is it time to upgrade

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all. So I've noticed that with games like Far Cry 3 which use DX11 my rig suffers. I can still play it pretty close to MAX. But It's not really getting there. My only guess is my CPU is holding me back. Not sure how much better having the latest i7 OC'd to roughly the same would be. But that should be the missing link right?

far cry 3 puts my system to its knees and i have a 3770k and 2 lightning gtx 680s..i barely get 60fps..and yes oc the heck out of that i7 and you should see some gains for sure..and turn on ht.
