If you have a very large game library then there's no doubt you'll want an i7 to cover your bases

Soooo, I have an i3 7100 and a GTX 1070 SC. I’m thinking of getting an i5 7640X. Will this i5 be able to draw out my GPU’s full potential? And is this i5 compatible with Z270 A Pro Motherboard?

This cpu isnt compatible with the board. z270 uses the lga 1151 socket and the 7640x uses the 2066 socket

It's not compatible. You'll need a 7000 or 6000 series non-X CPU.

Make sure to quote me or tag me when responding to me, or I might not know you replied! Examples:

Well the 390x is a lot slower than the 1070 and it also highly depends on the resolution you are playing at.

yeah maybe but the GTX 1070 is a lot more powerful than R9 390X

Also, i highly doubt those figures you talk about unless you game at higher than 1080p resolution.

Don't get the 7640x. It's not compatible and the motherboard required would make it not worth it.

Also, my brother uses an i5 7400 and a GTX 970, which faces pretty stark bottlenecks in titles such as Overwatch and For Honor. What games do you play?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Honestly if you want to make the bottleneck go away you should consider a 7700k. They can be found used for around 200-240. You could go for a 7600k for around 120-150, but the loss of hyperthreading makes me advise against it. You have a z board might as well get a K sku to go with it.
