Hey guys, I’m completely computer illiterate, but I’ve recently gone down the path of upgrading my pc. I recently purchased and installed an RTX 2070, along with a new PSU (EVGA 650w Gold). After firing the computer back up, I booted up Black Ops 4 on the recommended settings, and I couldn’t really get over 48-50 FPS, and there was horrific stuttering.

So I took a look at the CPU performance, and it’s pretty much 100% while I’m gaming. I’m assuming my cpu is bottlenecked badly, and I need to know which CPU to get, and if I should also upgrade my motherboard, or if it’s good enough to keep. I’ve searched and searched and can’t find anything pertaining to my motherboard and what it can or cant handle. I’ve listed the relevant info below, let me know if I’m missing anything, thanks in advance!

CPU: AMD FX-6300 six core 3.5GHz
Motherboard: MSI 760GM-P34 (FX)

If you're on an AMD FX platform it's time to upgrade the whole thing. You'll need a new CPU, motherboard, and DDR4 RAM.

So figure up a budget for that and you can decide what to pick that you can afford. I'd suggest at least a Core i5-8600K or Ryzen 5 2600.

Man I was afraid of that. I don’t have an unlimited budget but I also don’t want inferior products. I’d say between $500-$600 would be ideal.

When you say DDR4, is that separate from the motherboard?

AMD; and you can upgrade that to a Ryzen 7 2700X if you want.

Intel; again you can upgrade that to an i7-8700K or 9700K. I gave the Intl a better cooler than what the AMD comes with. You could add a better cooler to the AMD build to get the most out of it.
