I want to upgrade my core i5 7400 which is starting to feel slow with modern titles
My PC has a gtx 1070 and 24gb of 2400mhz ram (8+16)
i want to upgrade my CPU and mobo to something that will run games fine at 144hz 1080p , i play mostly bf5, overwatch, cities skylines, csgo, civ 6 and a few indie games.
also i live in australia so prices are abit messed up and we have a very small used market here and my budget is around 300 aud
after some research my options are:
Ryzen 5 2600 - $200 +cheapest B450M mobo- $110 total 310 ish
core i5 9400f - $225 + cheapest b360 mobo-$105 total 330ish
which CPU will bring the best performance in game for the best value?
also will the 2400mhz ram hurt the ryzen too much?
any other CPU suggestions?
thanks in advance
