Possible Upgrade for gaming

 Share

2star-v1.gif

Hi, i have a mother B150m d3h, i5 6500 and GTX 1080 with 16GB 2133Mhz, a Seasonic 520 and a monitor 144hz 1440p Gsync.

I play multiplayer games like PUBG, overwatch and single player games. I want to upgrade my rig to get more FPS because right now i have to play some games in medium or high to get 100fps stable for example, or in Pubg i have a few stutters even with gsync on because sometimes my FPS are in 80 and drop to 65 for example. I think in a 8600k with New mother and New fastest rams, what do u think? Is worth the upgrade?

That’s your cpu bottlenecking the gpu..... maybe upgrade to 8th gen when they’re fully released

EDIT: I managed to skip over the part about the 8600k, yes I think it would be worth it. Your ram should be fine

Get the 8600K and overclock it you'll see mild to significant improvements across the board.

 

The 6500 isn't that great of a CPU when paired with a 1080, it's worse then Ryzen in most cases.

 

You can also keep your RAM to save some money because it doesn't really affect Intel CPUs all that much.

Don't. Look for a used 6700k, 7700, or 7700k instead. It'll be a lot cheaper since you can keep your mobo.

Interested in computer architecture? Still in middle or high school? P.M. me!

 

I love computer hardware and feel free to ask me anything about that (or phones). I especially like SSDs. But please do not ask me anything about Networking, programming, command line stuff, or any relatively hard software stuff. I know next to nothing about that.

But with my mobo i cant ocing... So if i go for a 7700k i buy a z270 mobo and a AIO 120 cooling to get fresh... Or buy a 8600k with z370, ocing to 4.7ghz and buy a AIO 120 cooling too.. Or AIO 280 is better or not worth the money? 

 

With my seasonic 520 i am good for these oced cpu?
