Planning to Upgrade CPU

Budget (including currency): Less than USD 700

Country: Singapore but I can buy from Amazon US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: COD, Battlefield (soon), New World

Monitor: 27 inch 1440p 144hz

Other details:

I have a GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS and i5 - 9600K, is this still okay to pair with a GTX 3080? Or is it time to upgrade?

If need to upgrade, I am thinking of upgrading to Ryzen 5 5600x (any suggestion on the RAM side?, if I opt to upgrade)

 

Thanks 🙇‍♂️

do YOU think it's time to upgrade? different people have different needs

if your game still runs fine (or up to your standards), then why upgrade?

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Just overclock the cpu and wait till next next gen cause upgrading now is quite a waste since am4 and lga 1200 are dead end platforms now

 

And you should be overclocking or atleast undervolting that cpu anyways cause leaving a k cpu stock is basically wasted potential cause it has better silicon than the regular non k cpus
