PC:
GTX 980ti
8gb RAM
intel i5 7500
B250m Pro mobo

Looking to upgrade my cpu as it's holding my pc back from pushing the higher frame rates in comp games such as Rainbow Six. CPU constantly sits at full usage and causes stuttering in games. Was wondering what a good upgrade would be? Preferably I would like to stay 7th gen as I wouldn't have to drop money on a new motherboard as well but if it comes to it i'm happy to upgrade that too. Cheers guys!

Thanks man, appreciate it! Is the 2600 a substantial upgrade to the 7500?
