Hey, I'm wondering which one to get - I'm mainly upgrading my CPU (i3 10100f) because of gaming. I'm not planning to do anything else than game on this PC, and I have this issue with some GTA 5 servers. I get a lot of stuttering in a specific server (GTA World) and I got told that I need to upgrade my CPU. Now my question is is there going to be a big difference between the i5 10600k and the I7 10700K for GTA 5 and gaming in general? I'm quite sure that there is a difference for GTA 5 but if the i5 10600k is going to fix stuttering issues for me and stuff that aren't fps based, then that's the better choice. My current system is a GTX 1660S, I3 10100F and 16 gb of 2933 mhz ram.
 
Have you installed a hardware usage monitoring software such as msiafterburner? You should do that and see which piece of hardware is your bottleneck. It might simply be your internet connection. How fast is your internet connection?
 
The 10600K is certainly more than capable of fully saturating a GTX1660 Super...(If the cost increase is not prohibitive, the 10700K's extra pair of cores might provide a few more threads for 'future peace of mind' however long that sort of thing might last)

Just ran a test and my internet speed is 96.92 MBPS. I have msiafterburner but I'm not quite sure on how to check which one is my bottleneck, but I'm betting on the CPU.
