Apparently it is bottleneckI don't really believe that an I7 3770 is a "super" bottleneck for the RX 5700XT.
I wouldn't go for the I5 9400f since it's really bad value for your money.
The Ryzen 5 3600 would be my pick for the upgrade. You can get better performance by overclocking + it gets 6 more threads compared to the 9400f.... changing to either of those will require a new motherboard and ddr4 RAM.
What PSU do you currently have?
Thank you so much!!I'd honestly recommend saving up a little more and going with the ryzen. First the9400f youd be looking at roughly 300. The ryzen does come in a little higher, but will give you a better cpu. Better performance now, as well as a future upgrade path. And it's only about 50- 60 more.
I monitored my CPU and GPU usage. And the result shows thatWatch a few optimization guides for rdr2, no reason at all to try and play on max settings. Hardware unboxed has a good 2 part video for rdr2. From what I've read about the division 2 is, it's not the best optimized title and most cpus will struggle. You definitely have the gpu power for it though. Shadow is another game you dont necessarily need ultra settings either. High usually has just as much visual fidelity with much smoother gameplay.
I'd still recommend saving more. You dont want to end up with buyers remorse going the 9400f route. And if you grab a cheaper b series mobo, you wouldn't really have an upgrade path. As, imo, you wouldn't want a k series chip in a non z board. Youd be leaving performance on the table.
Either way, you need ram and board. So unless you find killer deals, 270 isn't enough. Save up a bit more.
MB Asus P8Z77-V LX.What's the rest of your specs?
The 3770 should be capable of 60fps if you're playing on high settings.
-SotTR would see a small bump from a cpu upgrade.
-RDR2 would be a step backwards with a 9400F, because it would be thread bound.
-The Division 2 I'm not familiar with, unfortunately.
