Hi there
I currently own Core I3-6100 and I consider upgrading my PC so I was windering if the I7-8700(Non-K) still worth it ?
and if so, should I upgrade my GTX960 (4GB Varient) to 1660Ti ?
EDIT: Spelling.

The 8700 is a great cpu, but possibly not worth considering due to the cost.

If you want to keep your current motherboard and ram, then finding a i7 6700 or 7700 from the used market can be a good option if the price is right.

Alternatively I would look into the Ryzen 5 2600 and a B450 motherboard with 3000mhz or higher DDR4 ram (2x8gb). Or if you have money to spend, then Z390 and your choice of 8700k/9700k/9900k based on budget.

I just heard about this I5-9400F and someone said I can pair it with RTX2060 and I will get Same/Better Performace for similar price, Do you know anything about that CPU ?
I couldn't find anything about him....
