Re: help spend
Honestly most amd chips will keep ya held down unless you get a 9 series quad but even then it still will. In cod4 with a 9850 amd i got about 80-110fps. Just changing over to a q9550 intel I maxed out my fps at 200 in most cases. Lowest ive seen it get now is 140. All i did was just a cpu and mainboard swap. Memory and everything else stayed the same.
Intel Q9550 ( 3.84ghz OC on air)
Asus Rampage Formula
OCZ Platinum dual channel memory 8gig
Vista Ultimate 64bit
Radeon 4870 512mb
