Hey guys,

 

I recently bought a new GFX card (GTX 760) but I cant use it to full potential at all cause my CPU sucks. So I decided to upgrade it. My budget is about 200 € and Ill need both a CPU and motherboard. Obviously I want good single core performance cause I only play WoT and no other games. Right now I have an AMD Phenom 2 and its really bad for WoT.

 

Thanks for any advice.

check this:

you can see that best money to value single thread performance seems to be for intel core i3. you can also compare it to your current cpu performance.

 

you can find intel core i3-430 for about 130euros, and spent the rest in a 1150 socket mobo.You can find a lot of decent mobos in around 70 euros from all the well known manufacturers. can also jumb to i5 or 17 when game gets more multiocore depended.
