Any OC will make your games faster and maybe you could overclock the GPU too... However maybe that's not your cpu that is the slowest... A x6 1055t is really fast @ stock speed but anyway you could try for 3.3-3.5 easy then OC your GPU too to have the best performance...

Gaming PC: MSI Z77A-G45 ::: Intel Core I7 3770k @ 4.83Ghz ::: EVGA GTX680SC Signature ~1300mhz Boost/7122mhz ram ::: 16GB 4*4gb G.Skill 2240mhz CL10 ::: ASUS Xonar DX ::: Crucial M4 128gb (windows) + Intel 330 180gb (Steam games) + 1TB Caviar Black (storage) ::: Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold M1000 ::: Antec P280 ::: Noctua NHU12P SE2 ::: ASUS VE247H ::: Logitech G510 ::: Cooler Master Storm Sentinel II ::: Logitech X530 ::: Steelseries Siberia V-2 Black & gold edition

It will largely depend on how the game is coded to leverage your components. The other hardware in your system also plays a role. Certain games like GTA IV for example, will be more CPU intensive than others. So in summary, you will need to look into the application and then assess the hardware.

From what I've seen this year, anything over 3GHZ and 4 cores is enough for most games. Focus on the video card overclocking and upgrades.

As fare i know the 1055t have a clockspeed at 2.8ghz. will a oc up to 3.3ghz make a big different?

I didnt see it before today. i did write something wrong in the first post. its my buddy that has the 1055t and not me. have edit the first post.

like it said in my signature i have a amd x3 720 BE. Will it be best for me to wait for the piledriver cpu or buy a fx 6200?

i would avoid fx cpu's for gaming the intel 2500k or 3570k would be a better choice. i think BF3 would mostly benefit from fx8120 & fx8150 since BF3 uses all available cores if im not mistaken.

You dont know me but that's the way i like it!

It will take advantage, but reviews have shown the lowly i5 is faster than an 8 core AMD in BF3 despite the cores. Not sure why. Seems counter intuitive, but that is what you see.

i'll avoid AMD too as the 1055t is pretty much their fastest CPU in game for now, going to a piledriver will rather be a downgrade...

3570K is a beast and will run everything (and overclock to 4-4.5 easily)

For sure its better, but I have not got my PC overclocked anymore. If you're constantly looking at the FPS counter with Fraps then it might worry you..
