I have a 2200g and a 1070. I want to upgrade my CPU, And am fine going used. My budget is 400 dollars, And Im ok switching to intel. I would most likely have to get a new MOBO either way, I just want to get rid of this CPU bottleneck.
if you already have a ryzen mobo going with intel is not very smart choice considering the budget..
whats your mobo? if its b450 b350 u can just update bios and get 3700x that works very well with 1070
Like the others asked, what's the rest of your hardware?
It sounds like you have an AM4 motherboard. This means Ryzen is going to be the best option for you. If you just have 8GB of RAM, you might consider upgrading to a Ryzen 7 2700 processor and to 16GB of RAM, which should fit in your budget. Ryzen 7 3700 would be faster, but it wouldn't leave you much room to upgrade your RAM also.
Update: I have decided on purchasing a 3600. I don't have a very good cooler (Stock) , And already have 16gb of ram. What cooler should I get? Note: I am not the best at building computers, So It would be most perferable that I don't have to install like a water cooler. However, If it is best I'll go on a YT Binge to learn how to do this for my week off that I got while I wait for it to get delivered.
