I’m looking at upgrading my aging Xeon x5670 (currently clocked at 4.1ghz), as I am beginning to wonder if it is bottlenecking my gtx 1070 some in certain games. Does that sound realistic, or have I just been bitten by the upgrade bug? I game at 1440p @ 60hz, but I might eventually upgrade to 144hz one day. Would a Ryzen 3700X be a sound upgrade and ensure that the 1070 and, eventually, later generation cards have plenty of headroom? Or would it be total overkill?
