Don't know what to upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I currently have a I5 4670k running at 3.4gh and a GTX 760 GPU .

 

I'm looking at buying either a GTX 1070 or I7 6700K at 4.3gh.

 

What would be more beneficial to buy for P3D the GTX 1070 or the i7 processor.

 

Obviously I know the I5 can be overclocked as it's the K version that I have but to my demise it has seemed to Blue Screen my pc whenever I overclock but ah well,

 

Thanks

 

Happy Simming !

With either upgrade path you will have a bottle neck. I would think keeping the 760 and upping the processor would be the best, but upping the processor will call for new motherboard. I do not think you will gain as much with just upping the graphics card as compared to gains with the processor upgrade. (the 1070 may require new PSU, but I haven't checked out its specs yet)

 

I'm sure someone else will contribute their thoughts.
