CPU bottleneck? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
That CPU sucks for gaming. I tried one for about a week thinking it would work fine for light gaming, and I was completely wrong. Grabbing one of the quads and overclocking it as much as possible will most likely double/triple your fps in those games.

Because he can probably find an fm1 quad for 50-60 bucks, and getting an fx8320 would likely require a new PSU not to mention motherboard and a decent cooler if he wants to overclock. I would imagine if he wanted high end components he would have bought them already.

^What he said, and +100 for the Deftones avatar! Love that album.

He should be able to find an FM1 socket Athlon II 651k or similar somewhere. I think Llano has been taken off of newegg since there's hardly any products listed which are FM1 socketed.

Look into the Phenom 955/965 and OC the hell out of it.... how ever some games are begging to use 4+ cores which means looking into 6 core cpu's would be my advise to get your pc ready for next gen titles...
