  1. Why would the CPU affect the FPS so much on modern games? I thought FPS was determined by the GPU. Sorry for my ignorance here I'm just going off what I've been told.
  2. When I want to upgrade the GPU I'll also probably want to upgrade the CPU regardless of what I pick.
  3. But does that extra CPU power really provide much benefit for 1440p gaming Vs the gain from the better GPU?
  4. Budget (including currency): £1250 Country: UK Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mostly gaming, newest AAA games like Watch Dogs Legion and Cyberpunk 2077. Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): using a 1440p 144Hz monitor Should I go with an RTX 3070 with a Ryzen 5 3600x or an RTX 3060 Ti with a Ryzen 5 5600x (or possibly a R7 3700x) in my build? Both are quoted near enough the same price with the co
  5. Haha thanks. Just one more question because I'm not sure if I'm missing something but aren't AMD going to drop AM4 support for the next gen of their CPUs (the gen after the 5000 series). I've heard the next gen (set to release in 2021) will introduce AM5 and old mobos won't be compatible. Am I correct or misunderstanding something?
  6. Ok thanks for the advice. To play devil's advocate I can get a 3070 with a 10400f and a Z490-P board for £50 cheaper than the 3600 with a B450 from the builder I'm using and Intel has stated the 11th gen will support Z490's so I've still got upgradability. Obviously the 11th gen may not be on par with AMD's offering but Intel seem to be moving towards better gaming performance and pricing than AMD imo. Its impossible to say whether 11th gen will be on par with AMD so I wouldn't want to spend more on a 3600 and then decide I would actually prefer a rocket lake.
  7. Maybe I just don't understand CPUs but look at the video I sent. The i5-10400f is cheaper and arguably marginally better in terms of gaming performance. Is it purely the upgradability that makes the 3600 better and if so which mobo should I get with it?
  8. Here's an example where the 10400f is clearly at least on par with and arguably better than the 3600.
  9. I plan on keeping this configuration for 5+ years so by then the 5000 series will be irrelevant anyway and I'll need a new mobo regardless. I just want to know what's best out of those two options for the time being. If I did decide to go for the 3600 or 3500x would that be better than the 10600k 3060 Ti build in your opinion?
  10. What would you recommend instead of the i5-10400f in that build? The AMD equivalent for the same price would be the 3500x (or 3600 if I stretched the budget) but both have worse benchmarks for gaming.
  11. The 10400f is cheaper at the moment and according to benchmarks has a better gaming performance. The 3600 is more of an all-rounder but for my purposes a 10400f seems like a better or at least equal choice.
  12. Budget (including currency): £1300 Country: United Kingdom Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mostly gaming, newest AAA games like Watch Dogs Legion, Cyberpunk 2077 etc.; also basic productivity stuff but care a lot more about gaming. Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Aim to play on a 1440p 144Hz monitor at high/ultra settings and ray tracing at a decent FPS would also be nice. So yeah what the ti
