Hi,
I wonder if or how much it will help to upgrade my i5 8400 to ryzen 5 5600x to get better performance (FPS)
currently I have 1050ti, I want to upgrade to 3070 but since its not in stock I thought that meantime I can upgrade my cpu for better gaming experience
but I don't sure it will help much..
what do you think?

I also order G.skill Z neo 2x8GB 3600Mhz 14cl , so the ryzen also will have better use with that then the i5

that would be a dramatic upgrade for sure but the 1050ti will still be the limiting factor even with the better cpu.

but once you can get the new 3070, you'll be glad you have the 5600x over the 8400 :)

in general the cpu mostly determines the fps while the gpu mainly effects the resolution and eye candy you can use. but the 1050ti is old enough that even at low settings at 1080p it will still be the weakest link.
