Hey guys so I've been playing Far Cry 3/Hitman Absolution/GTA 4 lately and I think I might be having a CPU bottleneck. There's certain situations where my FPS drops to like 25 regardless of my video settings which leads me to think that my old Q6600 is bottlenecking my system even though it's running at 3.6. For more info, I usually run most of my games (including Far Cry 3) on ultra. I was just curious if I'd see a major improvement in replacing my Q6600 with the 2500k. Mostly using this pc for gaming and some audio recording. If I don't see that much of an improvement, then I think I would rather just save my money and get a new gpu or something. My specs are as follow: Q6600 @ 3.6 Ghz Asus P5Q Se Plus 6GB DDR2 OC to 801 Mhz Ati 6950 1gb Ultra Lsp 550 PSU Any help would be appreciated.
