Best CPU for a 1060 6gb

 Share

Im building a gaming pc and ive made up my mind for the 1060 6gb. For the CPU i was thinking of the i5 8600k but some people say that CPU is too strong for the 1060 and that it wouldnt work to its full potential. Im not an expert so can anyone tell me if this is true or not and please recommend me something else to see if this isnt that good?

By the way i plan on playing games such as Forza Horizon 4 or Need For Speed Payback on a minimum of 60 fps in 1080p and ive got a 250€ budget for the CPU.

I personally wouldn't buy the 8600k ever but the whole idea that the cpu is overkill is dumb imo. Some games are really cpu demanding while not gpu demanding while some are the other way around. It's completely case by case basis.

^Truth.

 

In any system there is a limiting factor, also you never know.. maybe you upgrade the GPU later on so I for one will always go for the strongest CPU I can.
