Yes, the CPU and RAM will have effects on performance. Having processes run in the background especially firewalls and anti-virus programs will seriously hinder performance. Which graphics card do you have?

Its currently in a pentium 3 800 mhz 384 mb RAM lmao ;) (very old) which averages on my favoutire FPS COD about 40 FPS, so when i put this card into the new (ish) lol one amd1600 512 mb RAM will i notice increased frame rates? :tazz: I know im kinda of asking the same qu again, but i just want to get a clear understanding. Many Thanks Mike. :)

Also little settings while playing help FPS. If you drop qualities of ingame graphics your FPS increases and smooths out especially if the game was choppy. So the graphics that you know that don't matter much, drop them to Low settings instead of high. I'm sure a new processor wouldn't hurt either bro :tazz:

answer is yes, moving to a faster processor would improve your fps. I would say 20-30% improvment depending on your ingame settings.

for a good artilcle on how processor scaling affects video performance:
