Question about CPU upgrading.

#1KabtheMentatPosted 8/25/2013 9:30:39 AM(edited)
Right now I have a Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz quadcore. I'm looking to upgrade fairly soon (want to get in on some BF4 action mostly) and I'm considering an i5-3570K or a i5-4670K. I was wondering what could I expect in turns of frame rate increases with the upgrade? As a baseline this is what I get in BF3 and with the system I have.

I play mostly on medium (textures at high) with no AA at 1920x1080. My FPS is anywhere from 40 to 100+, depending on player count and map size. Larger maps like Caspian or Op Firestorm (64 players) have dips into the 40s, but mostly I get a more or less constant 60FPS+

Now the system I have:
Phenom II X4 965
7850 2GB OC Edition
8GB RAM

Thanks ahead for any info/advice.

Edit: Small but important note. I don't use this PC for anything other than gaming really. So a CPU that's more multitask friendly doesn't interest me.

I have an AMD CPU myself but you really can't go wrong with an i5 if gaming is all you do.
