How does CPU choice affect gaming when CPU isn't capped? in CPUs, Motherboards, and Memory Posted December 1, 2019 14 minutes ago, Plutosaurus said: 1st Gen ryzen is fine for low end gpus at 1080p or mid-range gpus at 1440p, with reasonable frameate. You won't generally get 144+, but it will be perfectly fine for 75+ for the most part. I wouldn't upgrade unless you are specifically chasing high refresh rates. Higher resolution = less CPU demand and more GPU demand. If the CPU is good for 100fps at 1080p its good for 100fps at 8k.
