Hey guys, I'm planning on upgrading to a better processor and I thought that I could get some advice and opinions on here. I'm going to use it for games like PUBG, CS, Battlefield etc. and also stream music and videos in 1920 x 1080 resolution. Will probably also use it for school projects and stuff like that. I'm not planning on overclocking.
My current setup (Prebuilt):
CPU: Pentium Anniversary Edition, G3258 (3,2 GHz, 3MB L3 Cache)
MBO: MSI Z87-G55
RAM: HyperX 2x4096MB DDR3 1600Mhz
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 1033 MHz, 1098 MHz (Boost Clock) 2 GB, GDDR5
PSU: 500W, Cooler Master
OS: Windows 8 64-bit
What I'm upgrading to:
CPU: Intel Core i5 8400 2.8 GHz 9MB
MBO: MSI Z370-A PRO
RAM: Crucial 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2400MHz CL16 Ballistix Sport
The rest is the same
I feel like my current processor is bottlenecking my setup a bit and I thought I'd upgrade to 8th gen, which I hope will last for maybe 7 years or more. However after this upgrade the processor will probably be bottlenecked by the GPU so I might upgrade that as well in the future. Do you guys think that I will get a noticeable performance boost by this upgrade? Does it look good in a long-term perspective?
