I'm looking to upgrade my CPU and unsure how to find out which CPUs are compatible with my motherboard.

alright so, I got a pre-built Asus a while back and I've been tying to make it into a gaming machine, I have a GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti G1 Gaming 4G that I recently installed and it's running great! but now I've noticed my CPU bottle-necking and sitting in high 90% in most games. I would like to upgrade my CPU but researching it I'm having trouble finding out which CPUs would be compatible with my motherboard. I have put a screenshot of CPU-Z with my motherboard info in a hopes that someone can help me find a good CPU to upgrade to.motherboard.PNG.3cd2dba8d6934fdcd5531a1125347b54.PNG

Oh ok bro :( you pretty much maxed out this socket anyway getting a 6800k won't help.

You have to get a new Mobo+CPU

I suggest going B450 and some R5

FOLDING MONTH 2021! GOGOGO and save on some heating costs 🙂

that's unfortunate! I'll save up some more in the upgrade fund while dreading cable management lol. shouldn't be too bad since I just upgraded power supply. thank you so much for the help!

I would also suggest to get new PSU,all pre built branded PCs are using non name OEM super weak PSU.
