Worth an upgrade
My current rig is starting to feel antique but I'm not sure whether/what I should upgrade to suit my gaming needs. I mainly play sim racers such as R3E, Assetto Corsa, Dirt Rally 2.0, but from time to time find myself dabbling in some more mainstream AAA games like Witcher 3 and Metro - Exodus. I also game at 1440p as I have an Asus MG279q.
CPU - i5 3570k with an OC to 4.3Ghz
Mobo - Asus P8Z77-V PRO
Video - Asus GTX 1070
RAM - 8GB DDR3
Due to this rig and the native res of my monitor you can see I have to make some sacrifices in visual quality when playing something like Metro to get an FPS above 60. The racing sims apart from Dirt Rally 2.0 seem to net somewhere around the 90 mark.
I was considering a Mini-ITX build and just upgrading CPU, Mobo and RAM, while leaving the GTX1070.
Proposed new parts:
CPU - i5 9600k
Mobo - ASUS ROG STRIX Z390-I
RAM - 16GB DDR3
I'm finding it hard to know what the result of this will be as a lot of benchmarks are either running at 1080p or running i7's along with the GTX 1070.
Do you think I will see any considerable FPS gain even though I am not planning to upgrade my GPU?
