So i bought the Sonoma track and started practicing for an upcoming race. Turns out, on certain corners, with all the crowd and other assets, my pc was begging for mercy, even with the quality turned down a bit. I run triple monitors, with an r9-290x and an fx6300 CPU, that is good, but this track showed the CPU weakness on my rig. So i have an i5 4690K + new Z97 xfire mobo in the mail, for not really all that much coin. Expecting to see at least 20% fps increase based on benchmarks. Looking forward to seeing ETS2 improvement as well. Thanks sonoma and sector 3 for pushing me over to the Intel darkside! AMD was just not going to cut it, even with an 8350 - they need to step up their game! I really wanted to stick with AMD to avoid a likely windows reinstall, but they just don't offer anything with this socket that was worth upgrading too. I've always dug AMD for their great value, but i think i've exceeded the capabilities with this rig and what i'm asking of it. All that said, the FX6300 has been a good CPU for the short time i have had it - great bang for the buck.
