I'm noticing that my games aren't running as well as I would expect with all of the settings turned up to the max. At 1080p with max settings Sleeping dogs, Skyrim and Saints Row the third all average around 45 but can drop as low as high 20s or mid 30s. That seems too low for my card. I'm worried that I may be bottle necking at my CPU.
My current gaming rig has an intel 17 920 2.4ghz with 8 gigs of ram and a gtx 670 with 2GB of VRAM.
So my question is, do you guys think I would get a significant performance increase by just overclocking, or will a new CPU be in order? I really would like to be able to play sleeping dogs at a decent frame rate :/
Thanks in advance, duders
