I'm wanting to upgrade my CPU as I sometimes get 15fps or less in WvW when there are dozens of people in the screen at once which of course will affect my experience.
So I was hoping I could get some help picking a new CPU, now I have an AMD board and my current CPU is:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4Ghz
It has been generally a good CPU, until guild wars 2 my performance has been amazing and I've never had frame rate issues on any new games.
I've got a CPU in mind and that's this one:
AMD FX-Series FX-4170 4.2Ghz Quad-Core
Now I've been looking into Octa-core processors, of course I'd like to upgrade as much as possible if it's not going to cost me too much more, would an Octa-core even be beneficial at all? I'm thinking not but I may be wrong as I don't have too much knowledge with components.
Anyway, help will be appreciated!
Socket type for my motherboard is AM3+
I'll add more info as I may also need to upgrade my PSU but I'm not sure.
GPU: - XFX HD 6950 DD 2GB DDR5
PSU: - Be Quiet 530W Pure Power
RAM: - G-Skill 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz RipjawsX Memory Kit CL9 (9-9-9-24)
