What sort of processor should I get to best aid my 1080P gaming needs? What matters more in a processor, cores or ghz? Best budget gaming processor? I'm aware that video card matters more than processor, it's just that i have a crappy dual core that no longer works well to aid my gaming.
OP here. Current CPU: AMD a4 5300 3.4 ghz.
Budget: 170-190 US dollars
Graphics Card:Nvidia GTX 960
Games I want to play:witcher 3, crysis 3, fallout 4, possible some newer games.
Games keep freezing, told because of processor and not gpu.
GTX 760. I changed to an i7-4790K and everything ran smooth.
To be honest I believe the reason they required such a fast CPU was the way they were ported to Linux and perhaps thermal issues since the old piece of crap uses like 200W.
not him, but he's not the only one who gets a lower opinion of software that's not well written even if it's usable. I don't have any games I can't play perfectly but I have some that I know are complete trash from a technical perspective.
But who expected you to care about the technical aspect of things, you're on /g/ayming anyway
Best you could get on FM2, and since that trinity you have has only a single module working, i would say it would be a decent chip to pair with that 960
>100W power usage
Tbh save a bit more money OP and buy a decent intel CPU+Mobo
Well ya, a complete system rebuild would be a better option, but if he doesn't want to my plan would work too.
