I have a gtx 1070 and a i3-7100, i know its a bad cpu but its only using around 70% of usage. I cant even run minecraft without stuttering, help is very appreciated.
Go ahead and wait for the 3000-series, I'm looking at them for my upgrade set (mobo+ram+case+cpu), and the lowest-spec one (3300) is, according to every leak we've had, cheaper and more powerful than a 1600. I would definitely consider waiting for the mobo upgrade as well, as you'll find the current high-end will be the new mid ground. Keep in mind that those leaks are NOT final, but may even be one-upped by the final product, as those are just engineering models. Here's the link to one of the leaked spec lists: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/amd-ryzen-3000-everything-we-know,38233.html . The actual purported specs are shown down about halfway on the article.I would need a new motherboard really? I might go for amd then and get the ryzen 5 1600
