CPU or graphics card?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


 

Hello! 
I currently am running a i3 and a 1050ti with 8gb of ddr4 ram and was wondering if I should upgrade my CPU or my graphics card first. I was trying to play escape from tarkov and the frames were a little low and choppy so I was wondering if there was a better way to fix my problem. I would like to keep my budget a little on the lower side but I can expand if I need too. 
Thanks!

It’s a i3 7350k 4.2ghz dual core and I would say around $100-300 but I can save up for longer if I need to

Look at a 1600AF or 2600 (depending on prices) + a cheap B450 board like a Pro4.

Assuming your ram is on the slower side, you'll need to upgrade that as well
