I'm gonna be getting a bit of money soon, but I can't buy both parts. Right now I currently have:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750+ OC'd to 3GHz (used to be 3.1 but it became unstable for some reason)
Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3 ver 1.0
4GB DDR2 1066 OCZ RAM
EVGA GeForce GTS 250 Superclocked
Some Rosewill 650w PSU
The game that I really want to be able to play on the best possible settings for my rig is Battlefield: Bad Company 2 which will be coming out in March. I meet the minimum requirements just fine, but I fail in the recommended area. It suggests a quad core processor and a GTX 260 (I have a GTS 250 as you can see).
I was thinking about buying this processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819103727
If I do, how much of a performance boost can I expect compared to what I have now? And will it make a noticeable impact on BFBC2 or any games for that matter?
