    Is this likely to help?

    OK, my machine is as follows:

    AMD Phenom II X6 1055t
    AMD 6870
    8 GB DDR3

    Right now im struggling to even get 5 FPS in the Theatre part. Obviosly this is unplayable to i dont know how much better itl perform in other areas, but i can tell you it runs fine in the loading screens, i can run at about 15-20 FPS.

    This is at minimum settings, changing Resolution makes no difference, and again no difference between DX10 and DX11.

    My plan was originally to upgrade to Haswell in 2013, but was wondering if i was to get an Intel 3570K now and skip Haswell that this would run better?

    I know my CPU is not great but i had expected it to be playable. Or is it my GPU holding me back? I wouldnt have thought so.

    What's the thoughts? Worth the upgrade?

    Yep most demanding games run very well. I think i'll hold off on the upgrade for a while, see if Ubisoft or AMD manage to sort this out.

    How can you change from directx 11 to 10?

    The Config.ini file in My Documents. Makes no difference to me but you can always try.
