Question What should i upgrade to get better performance in fortnite

Damn,thats a really nice board.
Unfortunatelly,you will have to upgrade to a newer board,for a new cpu,and ddr4 ram.
Also what fps are you getting now?
Im sure u play on competitive settings,so that means all low//off except view distance and textures on Epic.

on performance mode im getting like 60 - 110 fps and on direct 11 im getting 50 - 100

i7-2700K CPU @ 3.50GHz
8,00 GB Ram
R9 390 Series
Why are you running the i7 2700k so slowly ?

That chip will do a lot more than 3.5Ghz...you should be 24/7 overclocked to at least 4.5 ghz and even that would be slow for that chip.

Also moving up to 16gig of memory will help as well as using an SSD if you're not running one.

That chip will do a lot more than 3.5Ghz...you should be 24/7 overclocked to at least 4 ghz and even that would be slow for that chip.

Also moving up to 16gig of memory will help as well as using an SSD if you're not running one.
how can i run it faster then

If you're not looking for max settings 144fps, I have a 4790k with an msi z97 board I got for a fair price. Board was $100 and came new, and cpu was $200. DDR3 1600mhz kits are not overly expensive either and you could re-use the stuff you have now! even if you go with the non "k" 4th gen i7 its a healthy performance boost. Regardless you would have to get a whole new board/cpu and potentially cooler and ram if you stray outside ddr3. With your budget you have a ton of options!

my suggestion is don't cheap out on the motherboard for the sake of getting a better cpu as its performance will not be near as good with a higher end board.

2-3 fps boost with 16gb from 8gb in fortnite
On everything else i agree
 
For fortnite this will do,r9 390 is more than enough for fortnite at 1080p

10400F has 6 core 12 threads,which is more than enough for fortnite.In gaming it is slightly better than 3600,and its not that far from a 5600X.
Z490 board for that ram support (which isnt really that benefitial for intel,but its nice to have),also if you decide to upgrade to 11th gen intel cpu's,this is a good board to do so.
2x8gb 3200mhz cl16,pretty solid for todays standards,and its rgb ;).
500GB m.2 which will be faster for windows.
Spending more on a CPU that you will only be gaming on is pointless in my opinion,mainly because of the price.

Edit: Also why not get a aftermarket cooler,it will cool better and it will be more silent.

Just Google "i7 2700k overclocking" there are dozens of articles including ones from these forums. I'd suggest you read a couple of them before proceeding.

The basics of it are you'll need a good cpu cooler like a Hyper 212.

Go in the BIOS disable Speed Step and set the cpu multiplier to 4.25 and cpu voltage to 1.25 and test it.

If it runs stable at that clock and voltage slowly increase CPU multiplier until unstable and then boost the voltage up in the smallest available increments until it's stable again. If it's not stable go back into the BIOS and set the cpu voltage to 1.275v and try it again.

Rinse and repeat always moving the clock multiplier first...do not exceed 1.375v on the core for long term use.

Each cpu is different so it may take 1.375v to get to 4.5 stable...other chips may do 4.75-5 ghz at that voltage.

Keep in mind every PC is different...but in general people today believe 16gig is the minimum preferred amount for a gaming PC.

How did he get that big of a difference between 8gb and 16gb?
I tested it with my pc,my friends pc,watched a bunch of other videos,ussually 10fps increase.
But 60 fps increase,damn.

Edit: Im guessing the 16gb one is in dual channel,so that makes a bit more sense,but 60fps is still questionable to me
