No a CPU upgrade is not needed, you can always upgrade it down the line if you feel like it but a r5 2600 should do just fine with even the more higher end cards.

What resolution are you playing on and what kind of performance are you aiming for from what type of games? ex. e-sport titles

Hey thanks for the response,

Res: 1920 x 1080

I've been playing games like GTA, RDR2, WOW, MW on high-ultra and losing fps and getting coil whine so something that will be able to handle ultra much better basically

Thanks !!

At 1920 x 1080 an rtx 2060 or a rx 5600xt.

Whichever you can find cheaper, they're the sensible option for full setting 1080p gaming at the moment.

The 1650 is a medium settings card at best on modern titles


Sapphire pulse 5600xt

That would be my personal choice at current pricing for 1080p for under $300
Thanks for your response!
Do you have any recommendations about GB?
Cheers

650 watts is still good, but make sure it's a decent Corsair, Superflower, Seasonic or suchlike. If you find one, post the exact model here and there's plenty of folk who will be able to tell you if it's a decent unit or not.
