Upgrade ryzen 5 1600 to 5600x.

So hey i was planning to upgrade soon enough (if im able to find stock) to a ryzen 5 5600x from a 1600 and i wanted to see what other people had to say and had some questions of my own.

i currently have a b350 asrock pro-m mobo (i'll surely upgrade with a b550 still not sure about the model)

2 x 8 crucial ballistix rgb at 3200mhz

xfx rx 5500x 8gb

i play mostly esports games at 144hz

 

Current situation:

i'm currently seeing in esports games that the utilization on my gpu is always in the low 70ish thats the main reason for the upgrade, in my opinion it could be a bottleneck at high framerates, but i could be wrong, thats were you come in.

Is it worth to upgrade the cpu or should i hold back and upgrade the gpu later (although i dont think it would be worth it for Valorant and overwatch).

And if upgrading the cpu is the right call what mobo is most suited for the new platform?

I appreciate all the help and thanks for the suggestions :D.

Thats the largest bottleneck i've ever seen. Quite a huge jump your making eh? Firstly you'll need to update your bios and install drivers and other stuff like that.

Second I  would recommend an X-series mobo like the ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero X570.

personally i recommend the 

tuf gaming x570 plus (WI-FI)

mostly because its a little easier on the ol' wallet (depending where you live of course)

Why? that is overkill for even 5950x. Just get decent b550 mobo like Msi b550 A-Pro. than can handle stock 5950x or overclocked 5900x and cost like 140$.

QUOTE ME  FOR ANSWER.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)
