Could someone explain this to me??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
After my experience with the BF4 beta I am not sure what to do about my system. Prior to the games release I was planning to do a solely GPU upgrade to a GTX 780. After some threads and reading here I was under the impression that my i7-930 had a lot of life left in it and my GTX 570 was holding it back... The CPU is hitting 95-99% in BF4 and the 570 is lack luster I play on low all the time and still to no avail. I understand it is a beta though. Moving forward I got my hands on a MSI twinFrozr GTX 780 from my local MC and it improved the game play but not by much. My family member who has the same 570 as me and a 2600k setup is only getting 60% usage from his CPU in the beta and around the same GPU usage as me. Id like to know if that indicates that I myself am going to be in the market for a new platform very soon??? Additionally the 780's usage in the beta does not exceed 60% while the 930 stays @ 90% why is this? what does this indicate? On the 570 in the beta the usage was 100%??? Also in bf3 it is the same usage 85-90 on the 930 and about 60% usage on this 780 but the frames and performance are much different??? If some one could break this down and guide me in the right direction I'd feel much better! thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gif

The 930 is OC to 3.8GHZ

The 1366 chips have been good up to this point, but as you're starting to see they are finally getting to the point where an upgrade will start seeing benefits in gaming.
