Why is a Processor necessary for Gaming ?

*Playing games that are high in graphics without a good processor and graphic card will damage your Pc within no time.I used to have a AMD sempron processor and no graphic card and i have played games like GTA 4.They irritated me with lag but i did not care about the consequences.But,within no time,i came to know that my processor is no longer working.Due to heat,my processor hanged up and that made me buy a new Processor and a graphic card.Now,i don't face any problems like Lag,Processor getting over heated etc.Hence,a good processor is necessary for every Gaming PC.

*Also,if you want to play games simultaneously by listening to songs (or) if you want to perform multi tasks,then a high end processor is compulsory.

* If you don't want to use the Pc for gaming,then any Low end processor can also give you a good performance.So,before buying,you have to choose a right scenario of usage.

      I use a core i5 4690 with a r9 290. Runs BF4 very well with tweaked settings (target of high fps for 144hz monitor at 1080p). When I run battlescreen on second monitor it maxes out the i5 and droppeds a lot of frames. Have loaded mantle API, dropped resolution on second (battlescreen) monitor to minimum and use mozilla browser which is better but still drops frames often but I find tolerable at the moment but I would have spent the extra money on an i7 if I knew.

      Core i5 is fine to play bf4 but if you want battlescreen it uses a lot of cpu then you want to pay the extra for the i7. I will probably upgrade to a i7 a bit later.

      I use my old 1280x1024 monitor at 1024x768 resolution for the battlescreen. Battlescreen gives a full screen map of the battlefield instead of just using the minimap on the bottom. Massive help in playing the game.
