Possible Bottleneck?

Hi so I've got an r9 290 and an x4 880k which I'm considering upgrading cause I think I'm being bottle-necked. Do you guys and gals think it's worth my time to get a used i5 4590 (it's my friend's and he'll give it to me for £40) and a new motherboard? Thanks for any advice.

 

Also here's my usage stuff while playing overwatch on low settings 60fps.

The motherboard should be around £15/20 so not loads. I'm in south east England :)

Yah, then I would definitely go with that combo and it should give you some really nice life out of your PC still :)

Anything on FM2+ is not so great for gaming, an upgrade to that i5 goes a long way 


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, Seasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained
