Hello all, recently I have experienced micro-stuttering within games such as BF3 and Skyrim and after checking my CPU usage, realized that it is my CPU causing this, a Athlon II x3. I have about a $100 price range for a new processor. What would be the best upgrade possible in that range? I can spend more if it would be a significant difference. I would like to stay with AMD as I don't want to change out my motherboard, which has an AM3+ docket, so the FXs are an option. I use the PC mainly for gaming. My video card is a HD 7850 and I would like to get a CPU that doesn't bottleneck it, or at least less than my current one does. Thanks.
