I have owned a HP ENVY h8-1437c Desktop PC (i5 3470, 12gb DDR3-1600) for years and a few months ago upgraded to a new video card (PNY GeForce GTX 1060 6Gb) and it greatly improved my FPS performance. I just recently started to notice with some newer games (specifically Assassins Creed Origins) I wasn't getting a playable FPS. So I was wondering what good would a new processor be to aid in my frame rate issues. Would I be able to play at or around 60fps or would I not even notice a difference with a newer i7 seeing how I have an older Motherboard and am limited on my upgrade?
Here is the processor I had my eye on.... "Intel Core i7-3770 Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz 4 Core LGA 1155 - BX80637I73770"
If it is worth getting could anyone tell me why I can find some on Amazon for $300 and some for $150... Should I avoid the cheaper one for some reason?
