Re: Considering upgrading my CPU
I guess I could attempt overclocking, I just worry about frying my processor. What kind of fan would I need for it? I assume the stock fan wouldn't be enough. I'm going to town tomorrow so I could try to get one then. In regards to the graphics card, what would be a better choice? Bang for buck would be preferable, especially since this graphics card is only about 6 months old. Bonus points if it means I wouldn't have to upgrade it any time soon.
As for Planetside 2, that's the issue. I can get fine frames in medium sized battles but massive battles are what the game is designed for and those are the spots I'm only getting 20-30 frames. I don't think it has anything to do with draw distance or graphics, I ran Farcry 3 on high with no noticeable frame drops what so ever. I think with Planetside it's the number of people. But then again, other games will give me problems too, Tribes Ascend is a good example of that. The looks like crap, there's not tons of players and yet I still got large frame drops... Is it just poor game optimization?
