I use my pc mostly for gaming, but sometimes also as a workstation. Browsing the web, developing applications in visual studio and related.

It has come to my attention that my GPU is overly bottlenecked by my CPU

Here are my specs;

Intel pentium G4560
gtx 1060 3gb
8gb RAM
A very, very old monitor that barely even still works.


I was thinking of buying a new 144hz monitor for gaming, but seeing as my frames drop below 144 fps at AAA titles I don't know what to go with anymore.
I want to be able to run above 144 fps (buy new cpu) and have a monitor with a higher refresh rate than 60hz, any recommendations?
