Hello community Few month ago i buy new GPU (1060 GB) and my performence go higger thank you for that. But now i see my CPU is not enough for what i am doing on my pc.
So what i do on my PC? Playing games. This part is quite good. I can run most of games in almost full settings (GTA 5 etc) but my CPU is on 70-90% of usage. In PUBG its around 80-95%(Low setting except render distance). I like streaming Recently i started streaming again. And since i have second monitor i see that most of times my CPU is 80-100% depending on game witch i am playing. Right now i encode video with GPU (nvidia nvec) so GPU is takeing the hard part but still OBS need somethink to do so mostly its takes 10% of usage. I stream in 720p60fps.(Internet doesnt allow me to do 1080p30fps or higger). During the streaming i also host MP games(strategy games) and run some background programs like chrome, discord, bots for chat etc.
Time to time some fans they can see that streaming is laggy and i see in OBS that is buffering and losing frames. I dont want to go lower on quality settings. I just want to have nice picture for vievers
Photoshop, video editing, rendering. For pictures and graphic am using photoshop Currently Seems like i have enough power. For editng video rendering and i think its not. Take a long time to make a 20 min video like 40-50 min to render in fullHD. Just for fun i am rendering Also fractals, but its not important
So i belive that its not good to have CPU at 80-100% usage all the time.
- My curret build
- CPU: Intel Core i5-3550p
- GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060(GB)
- RAM: 16 gigabytes 1600MHz (two slots)
- MB: Asrock Z77 pro3
- Drives: 1 TB Western Digital(Other data) and 120GM SSD kingstone (OS programs some games) PSU: Corsair 600 Watts
Budget: Well this is hard part like 500-700 dolars depending on CPU(thats why the range explaining below)
My opinion. Since i have old CPU(maybe causing the issue) i also need new MB and RAMs. So budget include those things. Now i am considering Intel Core I5-8400 or Intel Core I7-8700. Beetween those there is around 200 dolars different(reason for 500-700 budget). I am not sure if the power of I7 is worthy to spend money on it for what i am doing on pc most of times.
Last words: So i want to buy new HW for next 4-5 years. Also i dont like CPU with K version, because i neder do overclokings and i like coolers that comes with CPU(good experince Intel-3550p). In same time i am not fan of AMD i had bad experinece with them
Anyway thank you for reading, any relpy and have a nice day!
