    So what was the consensus for bf4?

    Currently at q9550@3.9 and a 6950. Get like 20-40 with medium. Is a better CPU the move here or is it a mixture of both, a complete overhaul for me

    Bf3: q9550@3.9 ati 5850

    Gaming at 1080p Settings all high, Both AA off, AO off Game was running great on metro but jumping into caspian was showing the true age of my card. With Fps around 50s with dips in the 30s and spikes to 60s. Is it worth upgrading to a 6970 or 570?
