Can I run my i5 3570K with my AMD RX 580 8GB? Or should I switch?

Hello, I have an i5 3570K with 8GB ram, and RX 580 8GB. I was wondering if the i5 3570K will bottleneck at all. Also, if so, by how much FPS?
should I buy an i5 7600K if it bottlenecks badly? If you have any cheaper intel processors in mind please respond with them. :)

I don't think this will bottleneck hardly at all. I think the 3570k will will great with the RX580. I'm running something similar.

A i5-7600K is not a big enough upgrade over a i5-3570K. It's simply not worth the cash outlay. Personally I would keep the i5-3570 and purchase a GTX 1060 6GB instead, because it's currently $80 USD cheaper than a RX 580 here on NewEgg.

Ah, your original message did indeed state that you have a RX 580. My mistake; I must have been tired, during the time that I was reading your post. In your position I would hold onto the i5-3570K, at least until the i7-9700K (8 core with hyperthreading). Then I would at least consider upgrading CPU / MB / RAM.
