7500 Question

Was not sure if I should have posted this under CPU or GPU but whatever I guess :)

So I currently have an i5 7500 paired with a 1060 (1080p) I would like to upgrade to a 1440p 60htz screen and was wondering if the 7500 would be fine paired with a 1070 on a 1440p monitor at 60htz? Now, I understand some games like BF1 are CPU picky so it all depends on the game, I pretty much never play multiplayer games, no RTS's no BF's no mmo's (except FF RR) no ashes of singularity or civ games, just single player AAA's like FO4, TW3, Dos2, Wolf TNC, GTA V, current, past and at least a year from now, can I get away with this combo or is my 7500 too weak for the 1070 at said rez?

If it is then I guess I will just upgrade my CPU/MOBO now and do the GPU/screen in a year ether way both will be replaced in a years time from now.

Ty :)

You should choose the GPU for the graphical performance you want and the CPU for the FPS you want. For a goal of 60FPS in games on a 60Hz its perfect, you will easily get a locked 60FPS in games and you can't see more than 60FPS on 60Hz monitor and for a goal of max/near max settings at 60FPS at 1440P the GTX 1070 is a good choice.

Although instead of the i5 7500 I would suggest a 1500X or a 1600.

Now, I understand some games like BF1 are CPU picky so it all depends on the game

I ran the beta with a 860K and got around 45FPS to 60FPS. Its not heavy on the CPU. You can easily get way over 100FPs with a 7500.

Ok and ty, I don't have the $ to upgrade both CPU and GPU/screen so the 7500 will have to do for now, if I get a 1070 for 1440p/60htz and yes my goal is high setting @ or around 60 fps. I was just worried the 1070 would be held back a lot by that i5 but your saying I should not have much of a problem. Thank you for your reply! :)

u bought a 860k? Why?

Because this was 2 years ago and it all I could afford due to having a FM2+ board and I was desperate for more CPU power.

I brought my i5 6600K @ 4.8Ghz a bit over a year ago.

4.8GHz? How much voltage do you use? I got 5.0GHz on my 7600k with 1.296mv.
