:welcome:    SaltySalsa,

 

Not enough information to go on at the moment to be able to begin to suggest what the problem could be, please see my canned text below;

 

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a notebook or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if a brand name, provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number for the MB, the Ram (including the amount) add on video card if one is used and the PSU (power supply unit) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.

Thanks for the specs which I used to check to see if your MB may need a BIOS update before fitting the new processor, apparently not as a person here has used the same CPU without issue.

 

Couple of questions if I may;

 

Are you using the computer for the same things as you were with the original CPU.

 

Has anything else been upgraded by yourself other than the CPU, if yes, when was this.

 

ATM I am suspecting that the graphics card may be bottlenecking the CPU.

well i also got a new monitor, before i was using a TV 1366x768 now a 1920x1080 but i would think that the new 330$ processor would be able to keep up with it. but anyways i have about 150$ more to spend to fix the problem i guess. so you think i just need a new graphic card or a mother board?

Can you also answer this for us, include any particular software that you have been using.

 

The size of the monitor is not the issue it is the speed of the card and the amount of bits in the case of the 64-bit version of the card if that is what you have.

 

Any new decent video card would require a PSU upgrade.

 

If you are comfortable with working inside of the computer I would suggest that you physically remove the GTX 730 video card and try using the CPUs graphics to see if it improves any.

 

Getting late here and have an early start so going offline shortly, will check back asap tomorrow.

Gday SaltySalsa,

Just helping out while Phillpower2 is offline.   Please answer the questions he asked as he needs the info to best help you.

 

1.   "Are you using the computer for the same things as you were with the original CPU."

 

2.   "any particular software that you have been using." 

(example would be, NEW software, not used before the CPU upgrade, like, Fraps, CCcleaner, Drive Booster)

 

3.   "and the PSU (power supply "  

(Give the brand and model number, example, Corsair, CX360 watt) 

 

ok i took out my graphics card and now im getting even lower fps like 20-30

Looks like the CPU integrated Graphics is a little weaker then the gforce gt 730, so the frame rate will go down.

 

oh i know what psu is now but uh could you recommend one?

When you give the model information, a replacement, (if needed) will be recommended. 

 

Thanks.
