What part should I upgrade (if any)
Posted 14 January 2013 - 10:38 PM
Right now the game runs ok on medium(ish) settings but does have an fps drop in a few places.
This is what I have right now:
AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor
ASUS M4N98TD EVO AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
My question is this, what would give me the best performance boost?
Should I spend a few hundred dollars on an Intel processor and motherboard or spend it on a newer video card.

EDIT: Note that even a core i7-3770K + GTX680 system will drop ti framerates in the 30s in WvW. Depending in what you mean by framerate drops and if you're fine with medium(ish) settings, then you may not need an upgrade.

What Tijo said is the other one. Get a new motherboard and i5 3570K CPU ($350ish US) . Possibly a 50% boost in crowded areas.

I have not built a system with an Intel processor for a very long time but pretty much everything I read is telling me Intel is the way to go.
Is the i7-3770 worth paying the $70(ish) more it would cost me over the i5-3570K?
The i7-3770 was my 1st choice when I was researching processors and I’m not really into overclocking.
