Upgrading E8400 3.6 ghz


Jun 5, 2012

I got some problems with playing BF3, got huge fps drops from 50 - 40 fps to arround 15 - 20 fps.
it doesnt really play that good and i kinda think its my CPU since i already upgrade my GPU from a Geforce 9600 GT to a Sapphire HD7750 1 GB (OC by the makers of the card)
My cpu is arround 95 - 100 % all the time.
This is my current spec

P5Q Mobo 775 LGA Socket
Intel E8400 @ 3.6 ghz (OC from stock 3.0 to 3.6
3 gb ram ddr2
600 wat supply
Ati radeon Sapphire HD 7750 1 GB ddr5

Now is my question, what should i upgrade, i got arround 200 - 250 Euro's
I was thinking of a Intel I3 2100, but i have no idea if its that good with BF3 since thats the only game i play.

Thanks guys :)
well, if you upgrade you're going to need a cpu, mb, and ram. The i3 isn't erally a gaming chip. The i5 would be better suited. Don't know if you've got enough money.
