Best upgrade for CPU: e5-1607 v3

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


I have a Dell Precision 5810 Tower that I got for a really good deal (almost free).

Some specs that I know of in it are: 64GB RAM, couple SSDs (500GB), GTX1070, E5-1607 v3 CPU @3.10ghz

I mainly play Division 2, Overwatch, Heroes of the storm (when bored) and Diablo 3


I want to upgrade the CPU as I believe that could be the bottleneck of the PC for me. What is the best gaming oriented CPU I can go with for this PC? I don't know the MOBO details yet, but it's stock Dell stuff.

My budget is limited to 300 max (and that's kinda pushing it). I don't need to OC since the mobo is stock and the case isn't really going to help with airflow. And I will be passing this PC to my kiddo once I am ready to actually build a good gaming rig (which I will OC).


Any recommendations guys?

Let me know if I need to provide any more details.
