CPU Upgrade question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys :) . I am thinking of an upgrade for my system. My pc is old has an i5 2400 processor but i have an rx 480 4gb with 12 gb of ram. I am not earning so i have some budget. i was thinking of upgrading to i7 3770 but it is too pricey for me at £70 (UK). I am not going for the K versions since i dont have an overclockable motherboard. There is also i5 3570 which is for £32. I use the PC mainly for gaming and 60 fps is the most i desire. I am noticing that i5 2400 has kind of bottlenecked my gpu alot and i wanted a boost in fps in my games. What do you guys recommend? Thank you again for replying :)

I have checked my motherboard cpu support list and it does support 3rd gen processors. Its an H61 motherboard. GA-H61-MS.

It looks like the gigabyte board you mentioned supports some Xeon E3 and usually these can be had for cheaper than a comporable i7.

Copied from the Gigabyte site:

The ones with N/A in 3rd column do not include iGPUs. Check the specs of these chips on ark.intel.com, see if you can find one you like used for cheaper.

Performance gain between 2nd gen and 3rd gen doesnt warrant the price bump.
