i3570K Upgrade Question

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have been flying X-Plane 11 exclusively with my current setup (i5 3570K @ 4.4, Water cooled, 16 GB DDR3 and GTX 1080TI)

For the most part considering the processor is getting a little long in the tooth it has performed admirably. Last year I added the 1080TI and now as I expected find my system CPU bound. It isn't horrific but I now have a chance to upgrade to an i5 9600K & 16 GB DDR 4 3000

I was just wondering if you think this CPU combination would be well paired with my 1080 TI? I currently use a 42 inch 1080P LG TV and don't have any plans right now to go to 4K. I do use a fair amount of Ortho scenery along with quality payware aircraft.

Looking forward to hearing what you think

I went from 4790K to 9600K & 3200 Ram...same 1080.  The P3d performance boost is very noticeable.

9600K is an excellent cpu.  Best value going right now.
