Hey all,

I'm strictly a PC gamer, but when it comes to PC hardware I'm a complete newbie, especially when it comes to a CPU. I'm just at a loss as what kind of CPU I need and how to install it. While I have upgraded my gaming PC over the years I've just avoided upgrading the CPU out of pure ignorance. It's time to sort it out. But I'm totally unsure what CPU I should get. Any advice would be grateful. Again, I'm only looking to game on the PC, with Cyberpunk 2077 being in my headlights for 2020.

As an additional question, someone online told me that I should buy a new CPU socket. Should I?
