Required hardware for running poorly optimized games

Can't power through badly optimized game.  You may get slightly better frames, but you'll always overpay to get the performance you want, and somehow still not actually reach the performance you want.

u need nasa computer to play poor optimized games properly

Alright, i get the memo.
Generally just better overall hardware. I assume mostly just either GPU or CPU depending on what the game is most dependent on (In its badly optimized state).

And i understand. That price wise, its a bad price to pay.

I'm looking forwards to building a new PC Q4 of this year.
One thing that has always bothered me. Has been my struggle with getting early access or poorly optimized games to run well. Therefor i have this question.

Is there any hardware i should consider, that can help my frame rate in such games?

we are talking games with memory leaks and all sorts of flaws.


I am not purely looking for a better frame rate in these games. But here is a list of games i believe to be badly optimized from my experience:

VRChat

DayZ

PUBG
Arma 2

Arma 3

ARK: Survival Evolved

The Forrest

Dirt rally in VR

Many early access indie games...

What is your budget.

Some generally good CPUs are:

Low

R3 3100

i3 10100

R3 3300x

 

Mid

R5 3600

i5 10600K

i5 10600KF

 

High

R7 3700

R9 3900x
i9 10900k

 

used

E3-1620v1-3

E5-2620v1-3

E5-2670v1-2

R7 2700

i7 8700k (same as 9900k)

i9 9900K (if you have a z370-z390 board and you find it used for a good price)

 

As for ARK, the game is optimized like pure ass, you need a Titan RTX to run that fucker at more than  30 FPS, the game is fun but damn if the devs are incompetent

QUOTE ME IN A REPLY SO I CAN SEE THE NOTIFICATION!

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.
