Hello everyone, so 1 year ago I upgraded my i3 3240 4gb ram pc with a new rx 470, a 240 gb ssd and an additional stick of ddr3 memory (4gb).
Every game I initially intended to play is currently running smoothly (I expected worse performance).
AAA titles that are considered performance intensive like the witcher 3, gta 5, watch dogs 2 and such are running on 40-55 fps and they look spectacular,
of course some times I need to turn off post processing effects that are cpu intensive to get a higher fps number but everytime I lower settings like texture resolution the fps remains the same.
Now I started playing late 2017 titles like ac:origins (and also bf1 and battlefront 2) and the performance was indecipherable... underwhelming...
I'm going to upgrade my cpu, now should I buy a 8th / 7th generation cpu and upgrade my board (socket) and ram (to ddr4), or buy an older cpu that will
match the current socket in my MB that only supports 3-4 generation intel processors? Should I get an i5 3th/4th generation or an i7 to get 60 fps on ultra? What is
the difference between the i5 4660 and the i5 4660s and 4590 and such?
Thanks, and sorry for poor language
