I’ve got this CPU coupled with a 1080 on my VR PC and I’m finding that the processor is the bottleneck from time to time. I guess at 6 years old I’m just asking a bit much from it, but I’ve not got much money for an upgrade.

As the LGA1150 family doesn’t go much further, I’ll be looking at a new motherboard and some RAM to go with man upgraded CPU. Is there something obvious I should be looking at? I’m guessing that the secondhand market might be my best port of call.

Thanks in advance.

10400f 6 core is a great choice at £140 ram another £60 and motherboard £70+ if you can stretch.

No point in getting another quad core cpu.

Used im not to sure on prices but you have acess to the members market so could check or put a post in the wanted section.
