Want to upgrade my CPU and motherboard - Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello guys!

I hope You all have had a great summer and i hope the summertemps didn't really affect your speed clocks wink.gif.


I recently bought a GTX 780 and BF4 is soon comming.

Right now with my setup, I'm getting 60-100 FPS with vsync off @BF3 in multiplayer maxed out @1080p and I'm running an I7 950 @4Ghz cooled by H70 temps 71-75oC in games.

I would like to upgrade my CPU and of course MB because of the socket.

I'm wondering about 3770K or 4770K but I can't decide betwen them two. I have heard alot bad about 4770's like load temperatures and stuff.

Do you guys have any tips about which of those two to choose from? Or maybe is there anything else that I should pick?


I'm upgrading because it feels like my CPU can't handle games in a decent way anymore, maybe it's just my mind but it feels so. For example i really expected more than 60 fps @BF3 (Even if 60 is great and after that amout of FPS really not alot of people can spot the diffrence in FPS) after upgrading from 460 SLI 786mb to a 780.

GTA IV is unplayable, Assasins Creed 3 is unplayable, crysis 3 very bad performance and I'm almost sure it's the CPU.

How much difference would i notice after upgrading to lets say a 4770K and overclock it to whatever it's stable (don't know how far people push it)?


Alot of thanks for answers guys i really appreciate them!

Have a great day!


EDIT: Or maybe i shoudn't upgrade my CPU yet? Well, share your opinion because I'm sure you are way more expirienced in PC building and stuff then me biggrin.gif!

EDIT2: something that worries me is that, I'm getting 60+ fps on crysis 3, only after i put the textures and everything on low. The "advanced graphic settings" doesn't really affect the performance. Only setting the texture quality from high to low increased FPS by 10... that has to be the CPU biggrin.gif

EDIT3: I Just found out my memory clock in crysis 3 is 3000 Mhz, shouldn't it be like 7000?

Personally l would not bother upgrading the CPU, yeah there is a difference in games but it isn't that much really. You are getting 60+ in BF3 I would say that is good enough unless you are running a 120Hz monitor then you may want to think about it.

I can't say anything about BF4 and the specs to run at 60+ FPS, anything I would say would be speculation. So you will have to wait for it to come out and be benchmarked.
