What is the Bottleneck? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
o.O omg guys, thanks for the lightning quick replies! So, I should buy a new CPU and Motherboard! Thanks a lot!
Crysis seems to be the only problem with gaming so far... BFBC2 EVERYTHING MAXED OUT no problems...

I was planing to upgrade my Specs, but didn't know on what to concentrate...

Now, should I buy an Intel i5 or some AMD processor?

Thanks!

AMD is really for a budget, but can still cope well with gaming. Personally i would upgrade to a higher end Intel platform such as the sandybridge processors. They are cheap and really fast.

Also you will need to upgrade your RAM as DDR3 is mainstream on both sides now (AMD and Intel)

EDIT:

Also i would upgrade to a single Power supply configuration as well, something along the lines of a Corsair 650w or 750w depending on if you go Multi-GPU in the future.
