Question Stutters and extremely low fps: What should I consider for my next build

Hello guys,
Please forgive me if I'm not making too much sense, I'm just learning and trying.
I was running an Intel i7 4770k stock because I couldn't get it stable even at 40 multiplier overclock. The temperature doesn't pass 78c but it blue screens during stability test.
I run 2 sticks of HyperX HX318C10F/8 FURY Blue, 8 GB, 1866 MHz DDR3 CL10 DIMM on a GA-Z97X-UD5H-BK Black Edition platform. I wasn't able to enable XMP because the option is greyed out. GPU: GTX 980.
One 60hertz monitor.
I gave up on the idea of overclock and decided to do a new ryzen 3 3600 build coupled with an RTX 2060 super later in the year. In preparation for the build, I purchased the RTX 2060 super and decided to use it on my current system, ( the Intel i7 4770k stock) trouble is I now get even way more stutter on the only use I have for the PC which is flight simulation (Prepar3d and X plane 11). I see 45 to 85 percent usage of my 16gb ram 50 to 90 (100 a couple of times) percent of CPU and 25 to 50 percent of GPU. My question is what is my bottle neck? If the GPU wasn't really the problem in the first place, should I simply keep my X97 motherboard and get i7 4790k and hope I can run that at higher clock and maybe buy a faster ram or should I go ahead with my build plan. Suggestions and ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

i7 4770k to 4790k wouldn't be a big enough performance leap.

With a RTX 2060 super I would definitely rather consider a 3600x over 3600 if the price gap isn't to big.

I went for a 2700 and should of gone for a 2700x but at the given time the price gap was big.

Thanks for a quick reply. The price gap between the 3600 and the 3600x isn't huge. Further question if you please, My flight simulator of choice does not appear to need the extra cores, seems speed is all that matters. Should I get something on intel with higher clock speed and lesser cores

The Ryzen 3600X would actually be ideal regarding the speed mentioned because 2nd/3rd gen AMD motherboards have a feature called precision boost Aka auto optimized overclocking on the fly the 3600x will run a minimum of 4GHz well gaming stock settings. The 3600x will also give you better chance on overclocking.
Newer Flight sims will definitely take advantage of higher core count in the long run. The RTX 2060 super will benefit out the performance from a 3600x.

My thoughts exactly as per the new flight sim. Thank you so much for you help. Finally I can push my budget to get the 2070 super do you think this would make any sense considering my bottleneck seems to be CPU

I would just give you a thought, since the RTX 2080 Super came out the market for the 8gb RTX2080 bottomed, you can get a hardly used one for 400-450€. Considering it was 800-850€ at the time of release you could get a sweet deal if your budget can go to that.

Since AMD pushed for the higher core count at a lower price point on desktop and the fact that the consoles are going for a 2nd generation of 8 core cpus, software and game developers have learnt to utilize the higher core count cpus far better. Quad core with Hyper threading will eventually die out.

The cheapest RTX2080 super I've seen in the UK is £660 that's about $755. My budget wouldn't allow for that.
Oh I'm sorry, you suggested the non super, that's still £500 ($575) which is about the price of a brand new 2070 super. I'd rather but the new one as I've read the performance of the 2070super is comparable to that of the 2080
