i5 6402p fps

I play csgo and i know that csgo needs a fast CPU speed and mine is only 2.8 ghz and i get 90 fps in lowest resolution and very low settings is that normal fps while having a gtx 960 plus a i5 6402???? im thinking of upgrading to a i5 7600k and a gtx 1060 6gb.

  1. If the only game you play is CS:GO, upgrading your GPU will do absolutely nothing. You could likely run the game at max details and see no drop in performance. A faster CPU would help.

    What's your refresh rate? Be aware that any framerates higher than your monitor's refresh rate will result in the extra frames just being discarded, doing you no good.

    how do i find my refresh rate
  3. It's probably 60hz. You can find it by right clicking on the desktop and selecting Screen Resolution, then clicking Advanced Settings, then going to the monitor tab. If it's 60, any framerate higher than 60 would be pointless.

    so if i get 60 hz what does it mean?

    It basically means that your monitor is refreshing 60 times a second. If the game has 60 frames per second at 60 refreshes per second, you've basically have max performance. Certain gaming monitors have 120hz which means that you'd need 120 fps for max performance ALTHOUGH you can have higher fps and things like animations and such will be visibly better quality but by 100fps you've basically hit the maximum frames you can perceive. the more fps you get, the less it will affect the quality until you can't even notice it at all. I'd cap it at 120 if you still plan to upgrade. Remember, a stable but lower fps is better than 600 standing still and 400 while moving/looking around.
  6. In short, your screen only shows 60 of those frames per second, the rest are just wasted electricity. Since you're already getting more than 60, I'd just leave it alone, or maybe turn up the graphics.

    i get an average of 30- 40 fps medium settings at 720p,On high i get 20 and on ultra low settings at 720p i get 90. Is my CPU that slow that on high and 720 i get 20 fps or how can i get a fps boost without overclocking.It says im running at 3.3 ghz in task manager cause i changed the ratio but it still does no change and it says my CPU is locked but i can change the ratio to 37x. I tried overcloking my GPU and it does nothing.Any fps boost tips before i throw my cpu and buy a better on like an i5 7600k or 6600k?(i have a gtx 960)


    Something else is wrong. That is a decent CPU and a 6600k isn't that much faster.

    Do you have the monitor plugged into the motherboard or the GTX960?
