Bios is updated as of a couple weeks ago trying to get an AMD card I gave up on. Now running an rtx 2070 super and my main game I play atm is WoW and some shift 2 unleashed, but my fps still drops below 60 sometimes without max settings. Honestly for a 15 year old game I'm astounded this is the case, first I upgraded my ram from 8gb to 32gb (8bg when I built this pc was over a hundred dollars which is the same price I got the 32gb kit back when a gtx 1060 was like 400 dollars so I got a used 970) and it helped a little since I always have chrome up with stutters as sometimes a random memoey leak happens while gaming, next I got the GPU

And now it seems like my core I3 8100 is too crappy to play a 15 year old [email protected] 1440p. My only guess at this point is that I have a severe cpu bottleneck

But the crazy part is back in 2008 I would get 3 times my framerate with an e6600 overclocked to 3.6ghz ddr2 ram and an 8800gtx on my old 1920x1200 monitor. I don't get why I need premium hardware this powerful to run my game smoothly as I'm trying to be more competitive. Even got a mechanical keyboard, a -g710+ for 70 bucks.


Anyway what I wanna know is if I get this i5 9600k and overclock it to hell, A: will I have any bottleneck at all with my 2070 super and B will my motherboard support it fully with a recent bios update? I remember 8th gen I series won't work on this board and Intel has a way of forcing people to throw away good hardware so I need to know if I have to get an 8th gen unlocked cpu instead, or if I should even bother upgrading at all. If the cpu works 100 percent ill prolly upgrade no matter what but any info would be good on this

Seems like too good of a deal to pass up at my local microcebter.

SPECS: No idea how to add my system like everyone else,
Case: o11D XL PSU: EVGA supernova 1300 watt CPU: i9 9900k cooled by a hyper T2 until my waterloop arrives
GPU: 2070 super overclocked @ 1ghz mem, 100mhz core

Surprised no one answered, GPU's are pretty much the bottleneck now, a 9600k at 4.8 (which you could easily achieve if you know how to o/c) will take a good few 2080ti to be the bottleneck. All the horsepower is in that and RAM timings but even over 3200mhz RAM you won't see negligible differences.

The resources WOW uses increases on each expansion to keep looking prettier ^^. A 9600k would do just fine. It would be a huge upgrade over that 8100.
