SPECS:
GeForce RTX 3070 GAMING OC 8G
AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz (OC'd to 4.2GHz with AIO liquid cooling)
Corsair 16GB(2x8) DDR4 Vengeance 3000Mhz
Gigabyte B450 AORUS PRO WIFI
Corsair CXM 750W PSU
Running on SSD

Recently bought a 3070 and a 240hz monitor hoping to reach 240fps low settings in overwatch (which should be fine GPU-wise) however my framerate has hardly improved from my gtx980 (~200 fps).
GPU usage sits at 30-40% whilst my CPU usage sits at ~50-60% (1 or 2 cores reach 85%)

I was told that an Intel CPU might be better for more FPS in a game like overwatch which is CPU intensive and I dont think it makes use of hyperthreading very well. If my CPU is the problem, does anyone have any suggestions for a $350 USD/$400 AUD CPU?
