    Upgrading from i3-8350k

    Currently using an i3-8350k with 16GB of ram which has been fairly decent. Upgrading the GPU to either an RTX 3060 or RX 6700XT. Thoughts on the best CPU to pair with that level of GPU that won't bottleneck the GPU but also won't break the bank and hopefully push 1440p?
