Hello.. I need some advice for upgrade my computer..
My current spec :
Intel i5 6600
Asrock H170 Performance
16gb Ddr4 2400MHz
1080 ti Gigabyte Aorus..
I'm using 1 4k 60fps monitor and 1 60fps 1080p monitor.. and planning to add another one 1080p..

What i want to do.
I want uprade to
Aorus Z390 Elite
Core i7 9700k / i5 9600k
Corsair 3200mhz 2x16gb

The question is, should i change for that or should i wait for intel gen 10 ?
Right now my current processor really bottleneck my vga..
I mostly play rpg / fps and with 4k monitor it really hard to stay in 50fps because cpu usage almost 100%.

The second idea, i would change my cpu to i7 6700, because my mobo cant support unlocked type.. but, would i7 6700 ideal with 1080ti for 4k resolution?

I already search this forum and another, but right now i'm not really sure so i want ask the opinion and advice.. thank you..

Nb: sorry for my bad english..

certainly a step up to a 9700K is a big upgrade over an i5-6600....

It will allow your 1080Ti to stretch it's legs, somewhat, whereas it was held back to half it's 1080P/1440P potential framerates by the 6600 for a couple years!

Update the BIOS of your board and switch to a 7700/7700k or 6700/6700k/ whichever you find cheaper, as it will increase your performance plentiful...

Yeah.. that's what i thought.. thanks for confirming.. and yes i forgot the standart clock for tipe K still higher than non K. Better find 7700k on market then.

And maybe the big upgrade will wait until gen 10, that still "unconfirm" when the release date.
