Does upgrade from i5 10400 to i5 12/13th gen or R5 5/7 gen with RX 6600XT make sense for 1080p 75fps gaming?

Well yes, since your motherboard only support pcie 3.0 moving to newer platform you can get a little boost from the pcie 4.0 because your graphics card is running in x8 4.0.

 

But still I recomend you to just buy a better gpu than upgrading your cpu. 

Budget (including currency): Rather low, PLN 

Country: Poland 

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Cyberpunk 2077, BF 2042/1/4/V, F1 22, Fortnite, Horizon Zero Dawn, Spider Man Resmastered and some more 

Other details My current PC: i5 10400F with BeQuiet Pure Rock 2, RX 6600XT, 16gb 2(8gb) Corsair Vengance LPX 3000 (running at 2666), AsRock B460 Steel Legend ATX, 700W SPC Vero L3 PSU, Nvme SSDs, 75hz 1080p monitor. 

 Hi, my main target is to play modern games at 75fps with Vsync on with highiest possible details. I am curious if an upgrade to CPU like 12600K or R5 5600X / (13600K or R5 7600X) would make any difference for 1080p 75fps gaming or would it just be a waste of money?

Not really. You'll be GPU bottlenecked, so upgrading the CPU would make no difference.

Mark my answer as solution if it answered your question :). Quote or tag me so I get notified of your reply.

Not really, no, the 10400f is completely capable of driving that RX 6600XT. If you want more details but the same resolution and refresh, upgrading the GPU is an option.

But, if you'd want a higher framerate, for high framerate a stronger CPU is needed.

Objectively not true.  This is only the case with the 6500xt running PCIe 4.0 x4.  PCIe 3.0 x8 is more than enough bandwidth for the 6600xt, so the switch to 4.0 would be a completely meaningless upgrade.  There would be no difference in framerate in any game, especially with a 75Hz monitor.   Please read about this stuff.

 

@haszko96 please don't waste your money on a platform upgrade that won't change a thing.

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".
