i7 - 3770

Hi all,

I currently have i5 3570, 12gb ram, gtx 1080, Seasonic 520W PSU, 3440x1440 75 hz monitor.

I feel like my CPU is a bottleneck when i play PUBG. Will I get any fps gains if I swap my i5 for i7-3770 (non k)?

I was thinking to get 8600k, but due to RAM pricing, I feel like its a waste of money.

Thoughts?

why not try to find a used i7 4770k +mobo? That would be a nice upgrade and u can overclock. (Plus u can carry over ur RAM)

3770 is on a different socket then the 4770.

I would go for a 4790k then and avoid the heat output issues the 4770 was justifiably famous for.

4790k with mobo is like 380$ on ebay. That's too much. For that kind of money, I can go Ryzen 1600 with a mobo and maybe even RAM.

3770 is like 130$

Then stick with the 3570 the overall performance difference isn't much at all.

But it isn't your CPU bottlenecking your system.

I feel like my CPU is a bottleneck when i play PUBG.

PUBG is mostly graphics bound with the majority of its workload bound up in a single thread swapping to a I7 from the I5 is only going to have minimal if any performance increase on a screen like that.
