Best CPU for a GTX 1080 and PUBG?

Recommended Posts

So... I been living under a rock recently and lost the track of CPU models, currently I have an i5 6600k OC'd to 4.60 Ghz but I feel like its bottlenecking my GTX 1080, in PUBG CPU runs almost all the time at 100% and when it hits 100% I get stutter and choppy behaviour I know PUBG is not perfectly optimized but that's what I play


I also need a good mobo for that CPU with good audio chip for my sennheiser x58 headphones, I'm not planning on buying a dac/amp so a good chip would be nice, I currently have a ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII GENE but the audio pops sometimes and it's really unpleasant, I'm thinking about trying a different brand this time, idk.


Price is a problem I'm not into super high enthusiast level$$$, I just want to play PUBG without hiccups want to get all the juice possible from my 1080 and decent audio for sennheiser headphones


by the way I'm playing on a 144hz monitor at 1080p, I got a Corsair AIO for cooling


Hope you guys can help me, Thanks!

any 3rd gen R7

or i5 9400

else best is 17 9th gen

the problem is PUBG is horribly un-optimised and you need a stupid crazy system to run it well.


yes you could go out and spend money on an 8600,8700,9700,9900 etc. and it would struggle less on vikendi, but is it really worth the $$$ ?


personally i run a 5Ghz 8700k / 1080ti @ 1440p with similar settings to you and it copes ok with vikendi. but thats a LOT of money to spend on a system just to play a game with slightly less stutter!

It also may still be true.


OP is playing on 1080 144hz. So, in the context of this post, it would make sense to spend the extra, if within budget.

I was speaking in a hypothetical. I couldn't remember what the OP was playing on. It could be 180 to 190 and my point still stands
