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 ?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.
Yep its basically a 9400 with no integrated graphics. Good cpu.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....
OK, could you please remind me what chipset 8700 need ?
I quit messing with PC's somewhen in jan 2017 so Im not that updated
Sorry for late reply..Intel 8th Gen Processors compatible chipsets are H310 , H370 , Z370 , B360 , B365 , Z390 .LAtter two being the 9th gen Boards but 8th gen CPU's work on a 9th gen board.
Yeah you will want to change that before upgrading, its not very good.I have Huntkey 550W PSU, But I'm gonna stay with my GTX 960 so I can save some money and buy RTX 2060/70 with modular PSU few month later...
