Best upgrade from g4560?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am planing to upgrade my CPU to something better, but I'm not sure what should I pick.

Currently im using old 60hz1440x900 monitor; Planing to upgrade to 1080p or 2560x1080
My rig currently hs h270 Mobo, so I won't be OC-ing my CPU;

I was wondering what would be best upgrade (Most significant one) for the future. I don't feel like I need i7 for 1080p gaming on 60fps;

Graphics card is okay, I guess (gtx 970)
So help me decide with what should I go.

 

Thanks in Advance!!

What's your budget? Used 7600Ks and other i5s and i7s are pretty cheap.

Anything intel gen7 should be alright, depending on the budget I'd say 7600-7600k (even if you can't OC, the higher base clock would work in your favor, although you'd have to account for a new cooler)

The highest end chip on the H270 platform is either an i7-7700 or i7-7700k. The 7700k will offer a higher base/turbo clock frequency as the locked 7700 will have a slower base/turbo clock frequencies. If you went with the 7700k (since the unlocked intel SKUs dont include the stock intel) I'd suggest a good aftermarket cooler to sustain its full turbo frequency of 4.5GHz. Since the locked i7-7700 has the stock intel cooler included, it should be abe to reach its full turbo frequency of 4.2GHz with stable temps. You could get an i5-7600 whcih has a decent turbo clockspeed or the 7600k provided you have a decent cooler.

Nah the i5 7600k is a relatively bad processor, if OP is stepping up the only processor that makes sense, second hand or not, is the i7 7700 as the g4560 can hold itself with the 970 and any meaningful GPU upgrade would call for the i7.

 

the 4c/4t on the i5 7600k is too limiting nowadays and we all know it can already bottleneck cards on the 980 Ti ~ 1070 level depending the game, the fact he can not overclock only adds to the issue.

dont listen to him ^^

 

the i5-7600k is fine for you also if u buy a good cooler you can attempt to baseclock

but if anything bottlenecks it would be the 970 before the 7600k

 

also my choice is to u is to buy a use i7-6700 for like 200$

Given that I didn't know his budget, I was suggesting it as a bottom line. I know it's crap. Of course ideally on that chipset he'd go for an i7.

IMO 4c/4t cpus are a dying breed (they are struggling right now and in 1-2 years they'll probably have even more trouble running games). I wouldn't buy a 7600 or any other kaby lake i5 cpu. If you want to keep your platform definitely go for an i7.
