Looking for some feedback on whether it's good sense to upgrade or not
i7 920 stock 2.66
x58 asus mobo
looking to upgrade to:
i5 3570k (will use automated overclock)
z77 gigabyte ud3h
I am currently only playing WoW, I know my system handle WoW just fine, but having tried gw2, swtor and even diablo3, my system chugs heavily
Right now, I am using two monitors, one for WoW, the other for other stuff, mostly streams(youtube, netflix, hulu, sports etc), and when I full screen the stream, my WoW would run at around 30fps(WoW stays in the foreground, so it's not the throttle kicking in).
With this upgrade, I hope to accomplish a few things.
1. WoW at constant 100fps even in raids (I will be picking up a 120hz monitor sometime in the future)
2. WoW fps not dip by half whenever I fullscreen a stream on 2nd monitor
Looking for folks more knowledgeable than me for some feedback! thanks!
