I want to play Valorant with my friends, but when turning graphics down and doing some other tricks to make it smoother, I'm still dropping below 60fps (which in my opinion is unbearable in a first person shooter game) therefore I am looking to get a CPU upgrade as I think that will benefit me the most.

I currently have a AMD FX-4300 quad-core, and I am looking to get a AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8 core

I'm not sure about the compatibility of this CPU with my system so I would appreciate any tips of new parts I may have to buy.

TL:DR: Want to upgrade CPU to play Valorant, unsure if the CPU I want is compatible.


Here is a CPU-Z 'validation' of my computer.
