Hey there, since Christmas is coming up soon I've been looking around online for what my next upgrade should be. I've narrowed it down to either a new graphics card or cpu, but i haven't been able to pick which one. I currently have a 2060 6Gb and a Intel 15-8600K 3.60GHz. I'm mostly asking here because I'm worried if i make the wrong decision, I will end up with bottle -neck issues.

First of all, why do you want this upgrade? What's wrong with the current components? Are you not getting high enough framerates, or want to run at a higher resolution? If there's a game that's not running well and you want the upgrade for that game then it really depends. different games/software can be more cpu or gpu heavy. There has to be a purpose of the upgrade before deciding.

Well I really want to be able to run the new battlefield 2042 when it comes out, what would help best with a game like that?
