After many years of fun with the i5 2500 i'm planning to upgrade since it just feels so slow now while gaming for example in GTA 5 I have discord and spotify in the background it's just not good for multi tasking. at this moment I want more FPS and better CPU performance. At the moment my wallet is not that big I can give like 200-300€ on a CPU or GPU.

I'm playing a roleplay server that's called FiveM that client takes like 80-100% of my CPU and around 40-30% of my GPU and my FPS is like 40-50 . At this point I don't know what to upgrade CPU or GPU to make the best upgrade benefits i'd be happy if it hits FPS 60+ . Also I was thinking of a new GPU GTX 1660 or GTX 1060 but I don't know if that fits my motherboard can you guys help me and advice me thanks


Specs:CPU: i5-2500 3,3ghz Quadcore

GPU: Gigabyte GTX 1050 TI 4gb OC

Mobo: Asrock H61M-S Intel H61 Chipset

ram: 16gb DDR3

Monitor: 60hertz 1920x1080



Looking forward to hear back from you guys thanks alot.

Thanks for your help, i've bought the parts and it will be shipped to my home tomorrow. This is my first time replacing the motherboard wish me luck i'll let you know how it went!

Btw, can i still use my PSU 650W Techsolo Black Mamba 14cm silent STP-650 Ultra Silent for the new motherboard?

Never heard of it, it should probably work however when you upgrade your GPU I'd replace it with possibly a better quality unit.
