This could be due to better support in in a driver update for the GPU or game update.
pretty weird because some time ago I was only able to play on middle settings (FPS 30- 45).
The FX 4350 vs other CPUs. "As Phillpower2 points out, for gaming, having a faster processor to feed the video card is the way to go.
No one can say, yes you can. Less demanding games, probably, Crysis 3, no. You don't have to have all settings maxed out, more important is to have a playable smooth game, most people are happy with a min 30 fps for very demanding games. You may get 100 min fps with maxed out setting in less demanding games.
Do you think that I can play games on Ultra - High?
If you have a 60Hz monitor even if your card pumps out 200+ fps, all your monitor is capable of displaying is 60 fps.
