hi guys,

the facebook game i play on uses 70 percent of 3.50 mhz power, when i go off it then my pc only uses 2 percent of 0.90 mhz power.

does this mean i would need to upgrade my cpu?

i have the i5 4570s.

many thanks

If the game runs well...I wouldn't upgrade the CPU...unless other things don't run well (which may require a better CPU).


This is totally normal btw>>>>

...as far as the lagginess after a few hours....I don't think that's being caused by the CPU.....that may be your temps getting too hot....or your power supply isn't putting out properly after a few hours.

The bottom line is...
How does the game play?
Do you get the fps you want?
Can you play on the settings you want?

It isn't abnormal for the CPU to run at 70% while playing...but it does show you aren't going to get much more out of it.

the game runs very well but after several hours it starts to get bit laggy so i restart the game then its fine.

this game does not show any fps.

this game only has one setting.
