What games can't you max, or play on high?

You should watch the temps on the CPU and GPU


Well...ok, I'm gonna change my statement. I can play a lot of games on high but usually not max (unless it's something like Dishonored). Some games I can't max: Battlefield 4 (even on all low settings, sometimes it dips below 40fps), Far Cry 3, Company of Heroes 2 (which runs like s*** on every PC), some other stuff. Blood Dragon for instance, I can run on High/Very high, but I can't do MSAA for some reason (or at least not if I want 60 FPS).

The temps are fine, I think (if I remember correctly).

What at resolution though?

I think it's the CPU bro. The i5 750 is pretty old especially since the recent i3 beats it in single core performance. So if you are playing a 2 core game, the i3 edges it out.

Time for an upgrade.

That's what I thought when I made my last topic, but like I said, "..some people said wasn't the problem with my rig -- I did OC it to 3.4ghz, but honestly I don't notice a difference (maybe I did it wrong, idk)."

So even OC'd it won't cut it?

7850 is a good GPU to have paired with that CPU. I normally have a 580 paired with my phenom II and I get bottlenecks in many modern games. If you upgrade, go big tho, look into at least a GTX 770 or a 280x or something.

For Battlefield 4, make sure that Mantle is activated. Mantle will do wonders for older CPUs
Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!

Don't upgrade for $300.
7850 is a respectable card, and the "upgrade" for a $300 card is going to be a massive disappointment.
