Hi, im thinking about getting a new PC. I like playing fortnite and i want to stream. Is 1060 6gb oc and a i5 9600k enough for 144 fps endgame, and streaming Or will it bottleneck? Fortnite is a very high cpu uasage game so the i3 9100f and 1070 i have today rund only 100 fps endgame, because of bottleneck.
thanks for answers

The bottleneck would be your processor. Your i3 9100f is a weak processor. Upgrading to the I5 9600k would be an improvement.

An I5 9600k with the GTX 1070 would be better than a GTX 1060 6GB.

An i5 with GTX 1070 would be better suited for streaming at 144 hz @1080p.

Hi, is the 1060 6gb with a i5 9600k a good combo that can run fortnite (high cpu usage game), with stable 144fps and stream without bottlenecking?
