so i can get a good deal on ebay on new items for a build quadruple ebay bucks...

i have the x5460 running @ 4.3 ghz on a evga 780i motherboard with ram @ 900mhz ddr2 800mhz. 5-5-5-10 with a evga GTX 770..

so i played battlefield 4 and could not max out the game on ultra when i should be able to with a gtx 770... oh well i thought cuz all i did was campaign...

BuT now I have titanfall and love the game and i can't max out titanfall either... i have to play on high settings turn off shadows, ragdolls, and impact marks to get smooth gameplay... when i was hoping i could play on insane or atlest "very high" smooth...

so i want to know if i upgraded to a gtx 4670k with a asus formula z87 or hero z87 if that would help out my gaming....my whole current build is in my signature... my new build would be the main parts

4670k or 4770k
asus z87 hero or fomula or maybe the msi gd65
8 or 16gb ddr3 ram
samsung evo 500gb SSD
my current psu
my current case
my current video card ( i have a gtx 780 now) have not installed yet

but this build is going to cost me near $1000... i'll do it if my cpu is bottlenecking my current gtx 770 or my 780 gtx i havent installed yet... would like to know today cuz i can save about $100 on the build...

Open up Afterburner and task manager simultaneously and play a game. If your CPU usage is 100% but GPU is under 100%, it's bottlenecking, if it's not at 100 but either is the GPU, then it's probably drivers.

no my cpu usage is never 100% and neither is my gpu...

but I am using a pretty old cpu without all the speed of the new ones

That is true. But even then I doubt it. I run two Titans in SLI with Nvidia surround and in BF4 with everything on I am at 40-60% cpu in multiplay. I was surprised to see no difference from my old X5650.

iI'm not going to do this upgrade on cpu and mobo and ram if my current components aren't bottlenecking me..

i actually just ordered a 500gb Samsung evo SSD and the cooler master 240L water cooling system...

those i can use with my current mobo, cpu, and ram...

i just need to know if its worth upgrading from my 4.3ghz x5460 quad core
