Processor for smooth gaming

Rafsan
 Share

I have a i5 6400 with an asus 1060 6gb GPU, i cant play any games smoothly on my rig though i have a 75hz LG monitor, sometimes i have to choose 1600*900 resolution to get more fps and smoothness but cant hit the 75 fps in AAA games, is it normal or not, if not then should i upgrade my processor and if so what processor should i go for?

I would check for used 6700ks and 7700ks. If you can get one for under 250 or so USD, i would snag one of those. If they are more expensive than that, I would go for a ryzen part, probably a 3300x or 3600. A ryzen 1600 AF would be great, too. 

3600, 2070s, 16GB@3200

Considering a new 3300X is 120 and a board is 70, the 6700k/7700k have to be less than 160 to be even remotely worth thinking about

True but the x700k will likely keep its resale value much better than the 3300x. He could flip it and probably get that 90 dollars back once he is done.

 It is this about reels value of gaming. Also if the trend of more threads continue, we might see a crash in the price of the 7700k

It won't, that's the worst possible reason to spend double the money on a CPU. Once Zen 3 drops and even the 40$ Athlon matches the 7700K, it will fall very hard and the value will disappear.
