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.

You could grab an old amd quadcore x4 for like 50
That would be an update

Intel Pentium G3258

start off by telling us your budget, current cpu, current mobo
>>
>>52352184
i had that, whenever i tried to play games it bottlenecked everything

hahahahahahahahahah
no

>>52352230
what gpu were you using

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.
>>
>>52352243
>believing you need more than one core for gaming

There is not a single cpu that beats this on single core performance even for triple the price
>>
>>52352278
For that price I'd go for an i5 4590
>>
>>52352306
and yet, there's more and more games that will require a quad core to even start up.

Any games older and you can get away with basically anything at 1080p.
>>
If your mother board supports it get an a8 5600k
I believe that's the same chipset. How much ram and what gpu?
>>
>>52352367
shitty console port that requires 4 cores to start up and only uses 3rd core during gameplay should be avoided anyway
>>
>>52352314
Lmao I didn't think you'd have to replace the motherboard as well. Sorry anon. You could go for an i3 4170 and a cheap h81 mobo.
>>
>>52352476
>this game is bad because i can't play it!
>you should avoid it too!
how's those grapes? :^)

This the meme to own all memes, dont buy this unless your trying to be hip

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.

>>52352537
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

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.
>>
>>52352156
Pick up an 860k and a cheap FM2+ Mobo for now.

The 860k has 4 cores and better single core performance than an FX-6300.

It will be around as good as a Haswell i3.
