hi guys,

my actual system looks like this:

i7 3770
GTX 1080
16GB DDR3
144hz Monitor

i mostly play CS GO and PUBG and want as many fps as possible for my 1080p 144hz Monitor.

no i'm thinking about upgrading mobo, cpu and ram. i could exclude some cpus, so now it's all about i5 8400 vs. 8600K.

i would go with the 8600K, if the prices were not this high at the moment. the OC potential is the killer imo.

BUT do i really notice a different between the 8400 and the 8600K with CSGO and PUBG?
will the 8400 maybe bottleneck my GTX 1080?

i thought about it a lot and would like to hear your opinions.

cheers

Not much. If you go for a non K processor you don't need the Z series chipset. B360 and a DDR4-2666MHz dual channel ram kit would do. If you decide to go for a K suffix processor you're going to have to pair the processor and board with a DDR4-3200MHz dual channel ram kit.

thank you! so the 8400 will not bottleneck my 1080 and it has enough power for my 144hz monitor?
