Basically im geting abismal fps and stutter in bf1 on low unlike (bf4 which is buttery smooth on ultra) My specs are i5 3570 12gb 1333 and gtx 1060 3gb. im getting barely 30fps-60 in multiplayer so i thought the extra cpu threads may help i was gonna just buy a i7 2600 but they've gone up in price so i found this xeon e3 1245, but i was wondering if i'd have to change my ram because i dont really have th4e money to. its just one stick of cruciall pro series and another of stick of normal ram.

Would this cpu make a dif in fps, and if so if i buy it should i need to buy ecc ram?

any help would be greatly appreciated

The mobo supports v1 and v2. Those are the same socket so should be compatible. The same socket doesn't mean it is compatible if the bios isn't. V1 is sandy bridge and v2 is ivy bridge which is the same generation as your i5. Since you can't oc, it's better to get v2 to get the most performance you can.

It would depend on the price if it's worth it. It'll only help a little and might be better to just upgrade more. I'm still running a 2500k and it has to be oced just to keep up with a 1060 3gb. $100 for a i7 k is not worth it to me.

Ivy is when they switched to tim so temps were usually higher than sandy, if not equal. It's still cool enough so it's not a disadvantage but it's not an advantage. It is less power but that's negligible. Performance is really all that is worthwhile and that is from ram speed and ipc.
