  1. You are suggesting new CPUs, but have you considered you will need a new motherboard and RAM as well? Possibly a new power supply as well. Also the 3GB of the 1060 is a waste of time if you ask me. The GTX 1050 Ti is better value. Depending on what games you are playing and what else you will be doing, you may not even need to spend that much.
  2. All latest that includes ac syndicate, far cry primal, gta5..approx all latest games....but I don't want to change my GPU....please suggest me CPU and ready to change mobo as well ram.
  3. If you say so. Just to let you know, you performance would be improved by replacing that GPU.

    However, here is what I would recommend.

    I just said it. The Ryzen 1600. But it is not going to fit in your current ASUS motherboard. You will have to get a new motherboard and new RAM.
  6. Yes I am ready to change motherboard as well ram....but as fx 4300 is bottlenecking....does ryzen 1600 bottleneck gtx 1060?

    No it does not. If you are ready to change motherboards, take a look at my suggestions above.
  8. Okay...Should I go with ryzen 1600 or 1600x...
  9. Best answer
    Go with Ryzen 1600 as I suggested. No need for 1600x right now.
  10. Thanks
