If the CPU is still working for you, keep using it until it stops and save your money for something a bit more modern. Any CPU you buy for that board will be effectively E-Waste, every new CPU being sold today is double the speed of the fastest chip you can put on that board.

This. For not much more money you can likely get a used mobo and CPU that is a lot faster.

Thanks, but rtx 2080 is kinda expensive, so can i replace it with 1050-ti?

You were asking about CPUs, where did this come from?

And a new CPU on that platform will likely just raise it to 40FPS with stutters and frame drops instead. Save up for like a month and go for something used, maybe 1st/2nd gen Ryzen or a new i3 12100F and H610 board with some new RAM.

Well, I wonder if you're using FM2 socket or FM2+ socket. If you are interested, you can try to find A10 7870K. It has quad core (though only 2 Floating Point Processor). If you can get that processor for maybe around USD15 or 20, it's a good upgrade, though you won't see lots of performance bump when you play modern games.

 

But FM2+ system is very very old, so I think you might better save some money to get a decent PC.

I apologies if my comments or post offends you in any way, or if my rage got a little too far. I'll try my best to make my post as non-offensive as much as possible.

Huh? 2080 is a GPU, not a CPU.

 

But the point we are making is, no CPU that will work on that mobo will be "worth it" to upgrade to. You would need a serious system overhaul to have any meaningful gains unfortunately, and spending a few bucks on a new (and still really slow) CPU doesn't make sense, cuz if you save say 2 or 3x that money, instead of getting a 10-15% improvement (which from 30 FPS would be 35 FPS at best), you would get over 100% improvement.

 

To follow back up on the 2080 thing, maybe you were reading my signature? Rig: i7 10700k @ 5.1Ghz, 4.8 Ring - - Z490 Vision G - - EVGA RTX 2080 XC Ultra @ 2025Mhz - - 4x8GB Vengeance Pro 3000Mhz 15-17- etc etc? If so, that is my PC, lol.

There is no cpu worth getting for your platform. Even the best one is still very bad for gaming and will not deliver a good experience no matter what gpu you usem

To add on to my last reply. Even with the best cpu you can get (the athlon II X4 880K) You will see almost no improvement. As its simply too weak
