So I have a 400watt psu powering my -
Asus rtx 2060 oc
Msi z370 a pro
I3 8100(waiting on i5 9600k)
16 gb ddr4 2666 mhz
I am wondering if getting the i5 9600 will make me have to get a new power supply ?
I have been gaming on this rig with the 400 watt psu but I don’t know if I should get i new psu. Is it enough for the i5 9600k 95watt?

I'm with drivinfast247, your next upgrade should be a better PSU then look at further upgrades.
I have another question and I don’t want to make another thread. So in fortnite I get a lot of frame drops and I’m guessing because of the cpu bottleneck cause of the i3 8100 but I was wondering if there is ways to reduce the cpu bottleneck and reduce frame drops?

Without replacing the CPU, lower settings, make sure there is a minimum amount of other programs runing.
