I doubt it. Also, this CPU is old now. If you have an AM3+ board, FX 8350/70 is the highest you may go. Or go with Intel/Zen.

thou i have some probs with it
in every game i try (the new ones like watch dogs, ac unity, witcher 3, gta v etc)
i get a weird lag or stutter
example:
the game runs rly fine and smooth for min or 2 then for 10secs lag appears (fps drops from 30 to 5-10)
and it happens every min or 2

i came to a conclusion that the lag i was getting is a bottleneck
i guess its my gpu thats bottlenecking the cpu cause its weaker, a looot
so im wondering is the only solution to change the gpu
or there is another solution
like overclocking the gpu or something
any help appreciated

hate to be the bringer of bad news but, yes gpu upgrade is a must, and probably memory to. Those games would be a workout for my rig. AC unity was poorly optimized, need good mid range gpu to get good fps on that one

He wasn't asking anything. He said that he had this CPU since 2009, and that it was a good CPU. Also, he said that he did some overclock, but since the stock fan couldn't keep up, he downclocked it at the original settings, or whatever.
