I'm currently stuck with a question inside my head for the past 5 months, if i should upgrade my rig.
The main game I play is CS:GO and I rarely play some other titles like Fortnite or the Witcher 3 but overall I only play CS:GO and I don't do anything like streaming or video editing.
I have the following specs atm:
Intel i5 [email protected]
4.5GHZ (fixed 1.192 vcore with really low temps idle/load)
MSI GTX 1060 6GB (I purchased this card 2 months ago as an upgrade for my old Gigabyte GTX 660)
8GB DDR3-1600 Corsair Vengeance
Kingston A400 240GB SSD
550W XFX Core PSU
AOC 1920x1080 144HZ Monitor
I was looking into either a 8600k or 8700k but the price of the 8700k seems a little bit out of range atm.
My main question is : Is it even worth it to upgrade my current rig for a game like CS:GO? I see a lot of streamers getting like 350-450 with a 8700k but would the difference be noticeable at all compared with my current rig?
I can remember I had like 400-500 FPS 5 v 5 in the early days just when I build this rig. Nowadays I barely get 200-250 fps, with sometimes drops to like 150 fps in smokes etc.
In the end I would be spending something between 600-700,- Euro if I want to replace my: CPU,Motherboard,Memory and new PSU. And I'm not sure if that would be worth it
Any help would be really appreciated
