I'm pretty lost when it comes to CPU stuff, don't know what I should go after for gaming. As far as I can tell my 4GHz is still pretty good like 6 years later... Do I really need to splurge for more cores? Most games I play still aren't using my current 4... I'm entertaining getting a new case so if anyone know's of any good deals drop a link please. Also need a monitor, not looking for 4k, need 144hz. So obviously I'd like it to be better than my current rig, it's starting to show it's age. So I'll pretty much be looking at everything. Thanks for any help!
Core i5 2500k 3.3GHz, OC to 4GHz though.
Radeon RX470 4GB
20GB of miscellaneous RAM.
The problem is, if you upgrade your cpu, you're gonna have to upgrade your motherboard, and you're gonna have to get new ram. Just a bad time all around. https://www.amazon.com/Asus-Monitor-Ref ... hz+monitor
This is a great bang for your buck for a monitor. 144 hz, 1 ms response time, decent color, it's what I have used for years, until I just recently upgraded to a 240hz g sync monitor.
As far as the rest of the build, it'd be way easier to set you up with a build if you could give a ballpark number on how much you wanna spend.
