Which CPU should I use?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I currently have an i7-6700K in my build, it does the job for me to stream, record and play games at "Ultra" settings for GTA V at 144 fps (above) (I have a 144Hz monitor and I don't want my god to go under it). I am planning to change the CPU to either i5-7600K or i7-7700K, but I want my game to be at least 144fps at ultra settings while streaming and recording at 60fps.

 

Current build excl. the CPU:

GTX 1060

16GB RAM

Keep the 6700K

If you want higher FPS your current CPU isn't what's bottlenecking you.

If you want to squeeze out more performance I'd recommend a beefier GPU!

The CPU configuration is alright, just get a crispier Video Card if you want more performance

Seriously you can reach 144fps ultra with a gtx 1060?

IMHO you won't see any performance increases by going to a 7700k. You can get equivalent performance if you just overclock your 6700k to 4.5Ghz. Obviously you can get better OC headroom with the 7700k but that would not be worth the $$ spent.

 

As others have already mentioned, you will be a lot better off with a better GPU like a 1080 or higher. You failed to mention the resolution at which you are gaming at too but since you have a 1060 then a lot of people will assume you are gaming at 1080p. In that case a 1070 or a 1080 would be perfect for 1080p 144hz gaming. 

 

If you really feel a lot of stuttering while streaming then you might consider getting something like the Ryzen 7 with more cores better able at handling both gaming and streaming at the same time.

 

I believe LTT already released a video covering this, comparing the different CPU's with this kind of workload.
