Enter here for a chance to win a custom MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries themed PC powered by Intel!
In cpu heavy games, your computer will perform normal. For example a 2060 with a 10900K would be great for CSGO pros rather than a 10600K and a 2080 Super.What happens when GPU is too weak for cpu? In cpu heavy games, does the cpu perform worse?
No, it doesn't. And it very much depends on the specific demands of the game.What happens when GPU is too weak for cpu? In cpu heavy games, does the cpu perform worse?
So to get more fps for csgo i should upgrade my cpu?In cpu heavy games, your computer will perform normal. For example a 2060 with a 10900K would be great for CSGO pros rather than a 10600K and a 2080 Super.
But in graphic heavy games like GTA, your GPU will hold your CPU back in performance
do i need bios update for new cpu upgrade? i don't know which generation my mobo supports nglSwap the x4 950 for a Ryzen 3600, and upgrade the graphics card as well, when you are able to do so. Both are well below the minimum threshold we'd generally recommend for an entry level gaming system.
Then this is probably the best option for you, to start with anyhow. But you have to realize that BOTH your CPU and graphics card are well below the minimum threshold for any actually enjoyable 1080p gaming on most popular or AAA games.tbf i only want to spend like ~150 euro on either gpu or cpu. Cause i mainly game like csgo so
Yeah it does make sense coming from an Athlon x4. But like you said, the price, as well as the fact that the iGPU is being paid for, yet a complete waste because the 1030 performs about the same and you're only gonna use one of those. The 3500X does seem like a good option.When coming from an Athlon x4, pretty much ANY quad core CPU that's been released in the last three or four years is a tremendous upgrade, so while you might not NORMALLY make that recommendation for a gaming system, this might be a case where it could make sense, except that, right now, those 3200G and 3400G processors are selling for about 40% more than normal, which makes them a terrible idea.
The 3500x I recommended is a six core, relatively capable and pretty close to the target budget. Considering that you wouldn't have to change boards, just update the BIOS, it's a pretty decent upgrade for the price. Then at some point down the road maybe find a deal on a GTX 1660 or some other low cost but fairly effective 1080p card. The GT 1030 is extremely lacking when it comes to actual gaming capability.
Yeah lol even in India where 3600 was like $210 6 months ago now it's about $275. Surprisingly the 10400F is just $170. Intel didn't take the hit here, even the 10700K which released at $580ish is now $470ishUsually I'd recommend the Ryzen 3600 in a situation like this, but right now the 3600 in most EU regions is about €100 more than the 3500x, so all things considered, it's a pretty fair choice.
